Blended Artisan Velvet Luxe - Tropical Style Chair
Chairs are one of those projects you don't want to have to paint and then wax, with smaller details and many sides to a chair, whether you have a set or just one to do it's one of those projects you want done fast, so Artisan Velvet Luxe is a great go to for chairs, just paint, cover and once dry you are done. Today we're showcasing the beautiful matte velvety finish that is Velvet Luxe on this chair, although ideal for a one colour contemporary finish, Velvet Luxe (like our premium chalk paints) comes in 67 Artisan colours and can be mixed together for endless custom shades and hues. So here we have a chair that has been painted and blended in multiple colours transforming what was a dark varnished chair into something artful and bespoke as a decor piece to hold towels and soaps in a tropical style bathroom.
What we did
Painted the entire chair in one coat of Tropical lagoon Velvet Luxe
Once dry we started to paint, mix and blend onto the chair. Darker blues you see is a mix of Tropical Lagoon with a touch of Carbon Black, blended out to Tropical Lagoon with the rest being a mix and blend of Dusky Fields and Tropical Lagoon then ending with Dusky Fields around the feet .
Detailed with forgotten gold glide
Brushes used : The One brush, Spalter brush and detail brush (all of the "One Series" bristles are perfect for blending)
Mixing and blending is a lot of fun and with a couple of colours you can create many ombre'd, mixed and blended looks on pretty much anything you like with little to no prep, utilising that luxe matte finish with it all being durable and wipeable. Artisan Velvet Luxe is a great go to for chairs whether it be a one colour or mixed and blended finish.
