Then a coat of Santa Fe Turquoise Sanded and wet wiped back, then stenciled using Caromal Toner, topped with Satin Finish So pretty… A before lap table getting it’s first coat of Ce Ce Simply White Then a layer of CeCe Smoky Mountain Gray, sanded/wet wiped, then a stencil using Simply White…
An accent table getting a first coat of Caromal Mocha Reclaim
turned into this! A metallic silver blend, then Caromal Colours Toner to soften… the stencil was done using toner as well.
Ohh Laa Laa!
Starting a chair in CeCe Mississippi Mud
then Vermont Slate over top, sanded and wet wiped back for some reveal…
A little Traverse City Red stencil and some Satin Finish to seal
Another similar chair –
CeCe Sedona sealed with satin finish…
The rush seat was painted too, with Mississippi Mud, and let me tell you, it looked brand new when she was done!
One last chair – didn’t catch the before – this is one layer of Caromal Colours Textured Base Paprika brushed on and dried, then Caromal Chipping Crème brushed on,
Textured Basecoat brushes over the dried Chipping crème and then, when dry, gets sanded back to reveal your under color (paprika).
A Paprika stencil and voila, a whole new chair!
Three chest drawers were brought in to work on. The first coat Caromal Textured basecoat Peppercorn –
Then Chipping Crème and Candy Apple Textured basecoat – all Caromal Colours products from their Artisan Collection. When dry, the finish was sanded to reveal the peppercorn, then aged using Caromal Toner.
The stencil was added as an afterthought, and total made the piece!
This week I received a nice note from Carol, the workshop attendee that completed the 3 red drawers above:
Hey Ladies, I just had to send you a note and pictures of before and after. My niece and I took your class Friday night ( I had the 3 drawers) and we had a great time. I couldn’t wait to finish my piece. I am sending you before and after and I guarantee the pictures do no justice. It is beautiful! Please keep me informed if you hold any other type of classes, I would love to take another one. Thanks Again, Carol
