A beautiful commission project for our client, adding a special touch to this sentimental family piece which will be welcomed back into the home as a feature in the bedroom. Transforming an old, highly Varnished Mahogany set of drawers using the Artisan Metallic Alchemy system. Enhancing the curves and all the lines with this highly luminous finish that adjusts constantly to lighting and it's surrounding. Now a  completely unique and bespoke piece, revived and re-designed especially for our client. 

What we did: 

Painted the entire dresser in Starling Premium Chalk Paint x2 coats directly over the varnish. Colour wash in Carbon Black (diluting premium chalk paint in carbon black with water, brushing over and wiping back)  to provide movement in the overall metallic finish. 

Sanded all the texture down to create a silky smooth finish with 240 grit sand paper 

Legs and bottom of the drawers then painted in Indie Gold (using the metallic alchemy system)  going full strength and feathered up. 

The rest of drawers in Milan Moonshadow feathered down and over the Indie Gold to create a soft blend and fade

Artemis Bronze feathered in between Milan Moonshadow and Indie Gold for a softer more gradual fade. 

Edges in forgotten gold metallic glide, and handles in Indie Gold

As NZ's only bespoke paint manufacturer making our own exclusive formulations including our flagship Premium Chalk Paint we combine technology with our fine tuned natural skills. We use advanced machinery with an exact accuracy measured within less than a ¼ of a ml and use a custom formulation database with complex colours formulated by hand; most of which can't be replicated by machines. Our trademarked FLOWplus® technology further differentiates our range being built in from the ground up and allowing our thick full bodied and highly pigmented paints to mould and flow effortlessly. We are a proud NZ company who promotes and uses local suppliers and products wherever possible. We also aim to have a positive impact on environment through low VOC paints, minimised wastage and smart use of materials.

From the advanced bristle materials through to the  INOX steel ferrules it all really helps to achieve the best results, and yes brushes do make a big difference to your painting experience and finish.

Aside from our unique range of products, we are also proud of our decades worth of experience in the field of decorative painting and training.
