    in the last group of photos there were a couple pieces that caught my eye!
    One was finished with a ‘soft silver’. Was there any other color as a base over the darker original finish?
    The other was a mirror with a dark slate first and then a bronze over it. I LOVE LOVE LOVED that and will be in to pickup those colors. Your classes rock the do-it paint world.

    • Hi Sandra, yes, they used Reclaim Mocha as the base, then the silver blend dry brushed over that, then the Caromal Toner to glaze over top. the mirror was actually my ‘textured metallic finish’ that I cooked up one day, and have loved it ever since – she used Caromal textured basecoat peppercorn, stippled on, as the basecoat, then the bronze, then sanded a little then did used the Toner to soften it. both are beautiful finishes and quite POPular!
