Ten Projects, Number Nine – A Textured Bronze Desk

More metallic, this one over Caromal Colours Peppercorn – a great textural basecoat.

No play by plays on this one, I was in get-it-done mode.

1)   Textured Basecoat Peppercorn (black),  brushed on (not stippled) .

2)  Brushed Metallic Bronze  over the whole thing.

3)  Let dry, and lightly sand to pop the black texture.

4) Brush on Black Glaze, softly wipe back.

I sanded the top and cleaned it up with some stain and poly

I used the original hardware, based it with TB Peppercorn,  dry brushed with a silver metallic blend, added black glaze,  a topcoat and Swarovski crystals.

I really like when pieces are finished all the way around,  not many are, and this desk was.    I wished there was more detail on the back side, so I created it myself using a thicker plaster through a stencil, and dry brushed  it like the hardware

I dressed that up with a few crystals as well…

  1. Hi Patty, Can you tell how to find information on the Aurastone certification process? Unless you want to come to the Yukon and do my countertops! Living in an isolated area with no one else doing this kind of work I think there is an opportunity here. Thanks, Colleen Date: Sat, 23 Aug 2014 05:25:03 +0000 To: kerr-parker@hotmail.com

    • Hi colleen, you can probably still search on Aurastone and see who is in your region that trains – they will also be found under Granicrete – the two merged awhile back. I took my training in IL but Im pretty certain shes not doing it anymore.
