More Transformations From Recent Workshops, Paint Plus Pizazz!

I am smack in the middle of another life change – the moving truck came Monday and took all our stuff to our new house.   A new chapter…

But I feel like my life is one big circus – ever feel that way?

So as crazy as life seems,  I am able to escape into my little painted world for the day,  and tonight too, because this week’s workshop is tonight 🙂

Before – look closely this is a slab of marble that sits atop a chest. She is tired of the green. Because of the surface I suggested she use Caromal Textured Basecoat as the first coat

Over the textured basecoat Putty she used American Paint Company Smoke Signal,  then stenciled with Vermont Slate –  love it!

This attendee is a painter herself, and planned on hand painting this flamingo on her piece, so she wanted the background to look like water. She first started with a brushed on layer of Caromal Colours Cobblestone, to add some dimension to her top, then brushed that with CeCe Caldwell Blue Montana Sky –

    Hi Patty,   I always enjoy your postings/e-mails.  Congratulations on the new location and everyone’s projects look great!   I have a question for a project that I am taking on – which I definitely need to “get it right” the first time or I will have one BIG MESS.   I am going to undertake painting the faux wood wall paneling in my house.  It is a 70’s home and I SO need the update.   I did have it on good authority to:   1.  Wash down the walls (I am going to use Simple Green (like Caromel Colors and you suggest).   2.  Use OIL BASED Kilz to prime the walls – two coats if necessary.  I was told that the oil base must be used to “stick” to the paneling surface, as the paneling is actually processed as oil based (?).   3. Once completely dry, then okay to use latex paint in color of my choice to finish walls.     IHowever,  just read (today) that putting latex (water base) over oil base will cause the latex paint (finish coat) to bubble and peel off.   Now I am back to square one…again!   Could you PLEASE help me in what is the correct process???  I REALLY appreciate it as you can only imagine what a huge mess I would have if this doesn’t work, not mention the wa$ted money.   Looking forward to hearing your feedback!   Thank You, Thank You, Thank YOU!,   Donna in Florida   PS – I am the one that sent you the mag. pull out of the chest of drawers stenciled in a henna pattern.  That was so kind of you to send me back a thank you note!  Very classy and professional!  I am glad that you like the design idea.

  2. You don’t want to prime all of that Donna, that will take forever, not to mention, extra work and $$… how about using Reclaim paint? that one rolls on, you dont have to prime, and it also is the only paint i have that has a built in sealer in it – depending on the color you are doing, you’re looking at 2-3 coats (2 for most, 3 for the light or bright white)

    I loved the chest you sent me, would love to replicate that…

    and ps) sorry for the late answer, my email is swamped and im trying to catch up – patty
