A stunning commissioned project for a good client of ours where we had completed a hall table for the end of a hallway previously in Victorian black and gold.  This recently completed piece will be sitting at the front entrance in the same line of sight as our other piece.  We wanted to create a feature piece that was sophisticated, both classic and contemporary using the black and gold theme that our client requested but with a twist to separate this piece as a stunning feature for the front entrance. 

An involved finished in Victorian Black created with a stunning understated lustre through the body of the victorian black paint finish which reflects, shimmers and responds beautifully to lighting. The edges framed in The Artisan Company gold gilding wax which buffs up beautifully to a leaf-like finish with the handles given the same gold treatment to tie in as well as highlighting all edges with a fine pinstripe gold. The legs have all been detailed with every bevel and dip shadowed with a subtle metallic fade up and down the legs overall a luxurious statement piece that is bold, rich and will work beautifully in our clients classic contemporary interior space. Tying in together with our previous piece that sits in the same line of sight working to complement each other. 


What we did: 
-Hand painted in a base coat of Victorian Black with subtle texture using a series 2020 size 20, pointed tip size 12, angled brush ( see video guides)
-Then a mix of Vintro gold metallic in with a pre-mixed Victorian black wax, t
his was then brushed and feathered over the Victorian Black ( see video guides Pt 2 )
-Deepened with Victorian Black Wax 
-Shaded and shadowed with Victorian Black Wax  
- Detailed in The Artisan Company gold gilding and buffed to leaf like finish
- Steel wooled to distress the gold gilding wax
