Metallic Paint Finishes
Happy Monday !
I enjoyed visiting with family from Arkansas for a few days. Lots of talking, eating, and playing with the children…..two, 2 year olds……craziness!!
What about you guys? How was your weekend? Since I didn’t get a furniture project finished, as hoped, I’m sharing 3 previous makeovers. Of the emails I get pertaining to paint projects, the metallic paint finishes get the most attention. Readers want to know what type of paint I use, if I use primer, how I get an aged affect, etc.
For the metallic paint finishes I always use Martha Stewart Paint products and I get them at Home Depot I use Glidden Grey Gripper Primer also from Home Depot. The toner I use for the aged affect is Caromal Colours Toner that I retail at the booth in Clarksville.
update December 21, 2015. Martha Stewart Metallic Paint is no longer being made. Another metallic paint available online is made by Modern Masters.
I mixed my metals for this piece.
Metallic Gold and Metallic Silver mixed together for a softer look.
The pair of nightstands painted with Martha Stewart Precious Metals in Mirror Finish and aged with brown toner, seems to be the fan favorite! That is to say, I get lots of questions about the products used and the technique.
I am now selling the toner on Etsy. Just click the photo below.
You can fit a bit of metallic anywhere in the home. I might even call it a neutral color. Or not……I’m not an interior decorator. What do you think. Metallics in your home….or not?
