Table with texture, layered in Somerset Gold and Artemis Bronze - Metallic Alchemy Range (video included)
We know these tables, often a bit dinged up and maybe a bit swollen from water damage or water ring marks, dark, highly varnished and usually you'll find one at an op shop or second hand shop unfortunately we don't have the before photo of this one but you get the drift. Ideal little tables for the Metallic Alchemy range, elevating it from meh... to wow. In an Artisan metallic these become more like furniture- decor, elevating the space that it's in and drawing the eye to it as a little feature piece for the home.
This table was really worse for wear, the top was incredibly damaged. Chips and dents through the wood work. To work in with the imperfections we stippled the top as a base for the metallics, a textured premium chalk paint finish was done, to work in with the chips and dings and also to help elevate the metallic finish and give it the appearance of metallic foil.. Artisan Metallics work particularly well on textured or curved surfaces where it can bounce and reflect the light, therefore require you being imperfect in both the paint finish and with the Artisan Metallics... easy enough right? paint messy? well... we have a quick video guide for you below as well....just click full screen and take a look at how the below was done.
What we did:
Hand painted in Clubhouse Grey Premium Chalk Paint, with texture with a staalmeester brush, brushing the paint in different directions to give the surface movement and texture as a base for the Layered Metallic Alchemy finish
Metallics: Somerset gold brushed on at high strength, 2 coats. Followed by a quarter strength of Artemis Bronze brushed over in dips and and areas where we wanted to provide lowlights
Edges framed in Forgotten gold metallic glide to frame the entire metallic finish
