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…
You could do this finish on your own piece!
