A beautiful before and after of this commissioned sideboard for our client who was after a luxe statement piece in black and gold. Using texture & age to create a feature character piece we used Potters clay as a base which was inspired by our clients dining room chairs that sat near by that had this neutral tone in the textile.
A great showcase of how you can transform a piece with straight lines, using texture and rustic character to create a visual feature piece . The handles have all been changed finishing off the look and this piece now has a presence and story to tell in place as a bespoke feature piece
What we did:
Hand Painted in The Artisan Potters Clay Premium Chalk Paint using a Pure Bristle Brush and size 12 pointed tip brushing in all directions
Watered down Carbon Black by 15% to apply a thin veil of Carbon Black Premium Chalk Paint over Potters Clay.
Sanded Carbon Black in areas to bring out Potters Clay , and the texture and brush work created.
Clear wax, dark and carbon black waxed in areas
Metallic gold gilding on detailing and bevels.
Handles have all been painted in Carbon black, then detailed in metallic gold
