What paint is your favorite?
I don’t have a favorite – I love them both. One is more textural, can hide more flaws, and can create one heck of a primitive chunky monkey finish, while the other is more refined, offers a delicious color palette, and manipulates effortlessly.
What happens when you put both together? I should say “Oh, it’s awful, a yukky look – don’t waste your time.”, and keep the lovely finishes to myself…
…but you know me, that’s not how I roll
I brushed one thicker layer of Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Putty on this chair, along with some Textured Basecoat Chocolate – both at the same time- then let it dry
Next came a thin brushed on layer of CeCe Caldwell Simply White. When that dried I sanded some of the white to reveal the under texture color then sealed it using the Cece Clear Wax. I love that the clear wax doesn’t yellow, perfect over white –
Can I lick the screen?
Isn’t that scrumptious?
Another chair, same finish
A shelf, again same combo – can you tell I love it?
Think of the combinations – 13 Caromal textured paints, 36 CeCe Caldwell jewels…
this shelf 1st coat dragged Caromal Peppercorn and Chocolate, 2nd coat CeCe Caldwell Young Kansas Wheat – topped with Liberon Wax
Here’s another piece – I started with Caromal Textured Basecoat Peppercorn, just on the top
I let it dry then brushed on one coat of CeCe Vintage White and CeCe Sedona Red, alternately, through a checker stencil
When dry I lightly sanded and revealed some black texture to give it an aged effect
then I finished painting and sealed it with Clear Wax
It’s like a Dr. Seuss world – there is SO much you can do with paint! No sanding, no stripping – start with a clean piece and let the painting begin.
One of my busy painty customers, Erin, shared this beautiful piece she painted-
I just finished this china cabinet done in CeCe Vermont Slate grey and CeCe Clear Wax! I basecoated in Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Peppercorn
Have a great day! Painting is my therapy…love all your great teaching!
Lovely attention to detail, Erin you are a master!
Caromal Textured basecoats come in quarts and gallons. I even carry the 8 ounce sampler pots, one sampler, using this 1st coat texture finish, could do a whole piece of furniture!
