The Silver Princess

By Amanda Dillon, Artist at Mettle Modern Design in Navarre, FL.

This princess dresser transformed to a metallic beauty fit for a queen!  It was hard to capture the essence of the metallic beauty from straight on in photographs, which is the reason for so many angled shots.  

Fully cleaned with a DNA scrub, then sprayed with BIN Primer, and sanded, this piece was base coated in PPG Nautical Star.  I created a thinned color wash with MM Metallics in Pewter over the entire piece, and went back and dry brushed in thinned GF Snow White and more MM Pewter.  The dresser next received a coat of Valspar Antiquing Glaze and a top coat.  The final touches were adorned with Gilders Paste in German Silver and Silver.
