A Client Distresses Her Desk With Candy Apple, Peppercorn and Parchment…

I forgot to take photos before, it was an old wooden desk but the owner already painted the body with Caromal Colours  candy apple red textured basecoat

A pretty cool piece, it had a pull out drawer with a built in ink tray

The  base also got some black (peppercorn) here and there, then the top was painted textured basecoat parchment

When the red and black were dry a layer of chipping creme was brushed on.  When that dried, one last layer of a  custom grey (peppercorn and parchment)

After it was sanded back, a glaze was applied, and then a script stencil using toner

she even stenciled a little script on the knobs 🙂

 All in a day’s time!
