Painting Furniture in Shades Of Color – Grey Black

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!


purple_chalk_painted_ombre_chest

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-

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

+  LOVE them all  + 

Wonder if they taste as good as they look ? 

Have a Blessed Week!

Layering Foil And A Custom Mix of American Paint Clay Chalk Mineral Paints…

So we’ve got these fun metallic foils available, by the foot, available in store and online

metallic foils, fabulous finishes paint studio, chalk clay mineral paint, american paint company, caromal colours, reclaim, paitned furniture, workshops, metro detroit, michigan, shop.fabfinisher.com

An easy enough way to add some pop and pizazz to furniture, trim, accents…

metallic foils, fabulous finishes paint studio, chalk clay mineral paint, american paint company, caromal colours, reclaim, paitned furniture, workshops, metro detroit, michigan, shop.fabfinisher.comDSC_0896

Foils can be applied over a painted surface-

– I don’t foil over an existing furniture finish – I paint or seal the piece first

– over Caromal Colours Reclaim (built in sealer)   let dry 36 hrs before foiling

–  over chalk clay mineral based paints – it will pull right off unless SEALED first.   Do not seal with wax,  as the foil won’t adhere properly,  I seal my American Paint clay mineral paint with APC water based Topcoat Finish.

BE PATIENT.   Don’t paint your piece and topcoat all in four hours and then expect  to foiling five minutes later – your base needs to be cured or the sizing will pull your finish off.

Foils work kindof like kiddy transfer tatoos – you rub them over a sealed, sized, surface – then remove the paper to reveal your finished product.  Most foil patterns do not transfer 100% off the paper – expect about 80-95% transfer.  Because of this, your basecoat color DOES matter as you will see traces of it.

We have a simple video in the works, showing the step by step application of Metallic Foils, and we’ll post that as soon as it’s available.

  1. Make sure surface is sealed.  Pay attention to your basecoat color and how it will play with your foil pattern.
  2. Apply one coat of Sticky Size/ Wunda Size and let set up to a tack (about 15-30 minutes).   You can brush or roll, but be careful of brush strokes as these can relay through to your foiled finish
  3. Lay a sheet of foil over the tacky size, solid size down (you should be looking at your pattern ) and scrub with a coarse scrubber to transfer the foiling.  metallic foils, fabulous finishes paint studio, chalk clay mineral paint, american paint company, caromal colours, reclaim, paitned furniture, workshops, metro detroit, michigan, shop.fabfinisher.com
  4. You can seal with a water or oil based topcoat – I like to use American Paint’s Vintage Dark Wax as it adds a little depth to the finish.  Use a glossier topcoat to create a high sheen, cool over the foils.

Click on this photo to read the post about this spiffy little clock table.

I played around on this accent table –   it was white when I got it and I used a black texturebase to create a raised allover stencil design on the top

I was yearning for something burnt orange, so I cooked up a custom color, using American Paint’s Magenta and Orange Grove

I brushed on the first coat, then a thinner washed coat, and once dry sealed it with APC Topcoat Finish

Once  thoroughly dry and cured (obviously I went quicker on this one) I applied one coat of the Sticky Size – it will go on milky and tack up to a clear

I transferred Woodhaven Gold Metallic Foil onto the top using a scrub brush

metallic foils, fabulous finishes paint studio, chalk clay mineral paint, american paint company, caromal colours, reclaim, painted furniture, workshops, metro detroit, michigan, shop.fabfinisher.com

then I drybrushed American Paint Shoreline,  a fabulous bright turquoise – great for adding a nice patina

It was hard to stop

metallic foils, fabulous finishes paint studio, chalk clay mineral paint, american paint company, caromal colours, reclaim, painted furniture, workshops, metro detroit, michigan, shop.fabfinisher.com

and when I was satisfied I realized I’d covered most of the foil 🙂

Cool, isnt it?metallic foils, fabulous finishes paint studio, chalk clay mineral paint, american paint company, caromal colours, reclaim, painted furniture, workshops, metro detroit, michigan, shop.fabfinisher.com

The base got a last wash of the custom burnt orange

metallic foils, fabulous finishes paint studio, chalk clay mineral paint, american paint company, caromal colours, reclaim, painted furniture, workshops, metro detroit, michigan, shop.fabfinisher.com

and when it dried I started to lightly sand the finish to clean it up (you can see the right side is sanded and looks powdery)

metallic foils, fabulous finishes paint studio, chalk clay mineral paint, american paint company, caromal colours, reclaim, painted furniture, workshops, metro detroit, michigan, shop.fabfinisher.com

I sealed the paint with American Paint’s Vintage Dark Wax

But then….    it happened.

metallic foils, fabulous finishes paint studio, chalk clay mineral paint, american paint company, caromal colours, reclaim, painted furniture, workshops, metro detroit, michigan, shop.fabfinisher.com

I couldn’t live with the orange legs longer than an hour…  I grabbed Born on the Fourth of July, a great dark blue from American Paint, that changes colors as you water it down ,  and painted the whole thing, top and bottom.

metallic foils, fabulous finishes paint studio, chalk clay mineral paint, american paint company, caromal colours, reclaim, painted furniture, workshops, metro detroit, michigan, shop.fabfinisher.com

Then I didn’t like the top being the same color as the bottom so I painted the top Cannonball, a black from APC.   Then sanded the bejesus out of it metallic foils, fabulous finishes paint studio, chalk clay mineral paint, american paint company, caromal colours, reclaim, painted furniture, workshops, metro detroit, michigan, shop.fabfinisher.com

and waxed the whole thing one more time, this time with American’s Clear Wax

So much for foiling the top!   The cool thing, though, is – you can ‘see’ spots, here and there,  in the top finish,  of the gold foil…metallic foils, fabulous finishes paint studio, chalk clay mineral paint, american paint company, caromal colours, reclaim, painted furniture, workshops, metro detroit, michigan, shop.fabfinisher.com
