Merging bright sparkly metallics with Rustic Charm with Artisan Premium Chalk Paint and Metallic Alchemy
When you dare to step outside the norm and blend the worlds of modern, shimmering metallics with the vintage allure of aged textures and rustic charm, you embark on a journey that leads you to a unique destination.
We've taken an old table table and further enriched its character by applying premium chalk paint to enhance its textures & imperfections. Instead of the typical waxed finish, we've introduced a medley of various Artisan Metallic Alchemy colours to the piece. This unique approach not only imparts an antiqued appearance but also visually reshapes the table, giving it new life with a visually captivating dimension that is ever changing with the light.
This is the essence of decorative painting with Artisan Paints. Our commitment is to provide you with premium paints that unlock boundless creative possibilities, enabling you to merge, innovate, and bring your unique vision to life with ease, requiring little to no preparation, low in VOCS with a rapid dry time. We're here to inspire, fuel your creativity and let your imagination soar.
What we did:
Painted the entire table in Tahr Premium Chalk Paint, over brushing and moving it all directions on both coats, ensuring we load the paint up thickly and over work it as it dries.
Luna Lustre Metallic Alchemy was then applied over the entire piece, followed by a subtle semi transparent mix of Indie Gold, once touch dry we've run steel wool over the piece to distress the indie gold and leave it in between the textures. This creates a great base to then start merging other metallics onto...
We then blended Clouded Pewter, Jayda Rose and Indie Gold onto the piece, mixing and merging each colour on with a spalter brush and angled brushed, lightly distressing and pulling back with steel wool here and there, shading and highlighting back and forth.
light brushing of dark wax to knock back the metallic and age further.
