A layered, chippy finish can be obtained a number of ways – here the texture on the first layer is Textured Basecoat Peppercorn, but instead of ‘chipping creme’ and then another Textured Basecoat  she used American Paint Co’s Fireworks Red, one coat painted on just enough to cover.  When it dries you can sand with a 150 grit to get thru to the textured base, and you can damp rag it to reveal as well.

I think APC Dark Wax completed this finish-

Love how this one turned out – the attendee brought a pillow from home to match – she used Textured Basecoat Chocolate, then I think the blue was Reclaim Nantucket – sanded when dry, and stenciled with a champagne metallic –
