Ombré (“shaded” in French)
gradual blending of one color hue to another, shading from light to dark
I had a white and black piece in mind to share, I couldn’t find the photos.
Instead, I found myself looking at photos of previous ombres I’d painted and shared, and then I FOUND THE PHOTOS OF THE ORIGINAL PIECE I WAS LOOKING FOR!
You know what else I found? Bakers are amazingly creative!
OH my Lord, this is just heavenly!
This was a piece I finished more recently –
I’m often posed the question, “Which of your paints is your favorite?” I honestly respond that the products I carry all have a purpose, and I favor them all (otherwise I wouldn’t sell them!). When I want to lose myself in creating a new piece, like all of the pieces in this post, I reach for my natural chalk and clay base American Paints –
When you have all the colors in the deck on hand, its easy to grab more than one color – two – three- even four, to create the perfect fade. For someone with less paint on hand, know you can create a white to black ombre with just white and black.
A cake fade prelude –
I stripped the top with the orange Citristrip, and restained with my Wood Topper stains. I carried those instore, never got around to adding them online. It’s on my get-it-done list… (if you’re local, and need a color, shoot an email to support at fabfinisher.com and I can add it to your order)
This is one of my favorite styles of furniture … so romantic.
I actually held onto this piece …
When the store was winding down, all the big stuff on the floor had to be quick sale’d – I didn’t’ have a large storage area to house the overflow of finished pieces, but I wasn’t marking this Regal Gentleman down – he’s one of a kind
Once I feel like everything is back in place, paperwork in order, taxes done (ugggh), then I’ll take these few pieces and list them online –
If they don’t sell, I’ll save them for that ‘some day spare room when the kids move ‘
No better way to wrap this post, than to share a few more beauties!
This one is definitely my inspiration for a future OMBRE, I’ve always wanted to do these colors-
+ LOVE them all +
Wonder if they taste as good as they look ?
Have a Blessed Week!
