There's something chic, contemporary and cool with Artisan Pewter Metallic and can add a nice balance and juxtaposition to those pieces that are a little more classic & vintage. Also a great finish for a more industrial look and not limited to just furniture but also decor, an artisan Pewter finish is so much easier to achieve than it looks we've taken all the work out of it so that creating a Pewter finish with beautiful depth and lustre is as simple as two steps
