Part of the fun was learning about the new items in the line. All of which we have on order.
My favorite, the Cracked Patina
A very easy three step process offering an authentic renaissance patina.
On the left, one color Cracked Patina. If the wood is revealed underneath, that is good
What to do with the heavily grained wood of Oak? Well let me say, it is a good thing I am busy with the start of the landscaping season or I would be stripping floors over here to create this effect, Liming Wax. Above reflects the wax in raw Oak.
But this one has a wash of a gray One Step paint which is then limed!!!! This is what I want to do to my kitchen flooring. Anywhere you have Oak, this can be achieved
Mica Powders, in a variety of colors, and effects, even a clear called Diamond Dust. A little goes a long way. Mixed into a wax, see the effect below
Utilize with a light hand revealing a whisper of gold (silver, red, bronze.......) or with a heavier hand
I brought a show and tell. In the concrete ornament line we carry are these Fox heads to be hung on a wall, book ends, paperweight, on a shelf atop a stack of books........ In and of themselves the patina is beautiful, never the chalk white of concrete but with a mottled look of age.
When painted in the black One Step paint, waxed, pounced with Dust of Ages to get into the crevices, then buffed.......one would swear you are looking at an old piece of iron. Hmmmm, can I do this to my outdoor concrete urns and ornaments? YES!
And Greek Key Patterns
The new size has been wildly popular, easy to ship, less expensive allowing for more experimentation, collect all
Happy Mothers Day week!
