Turquoise and Gold Gilding combo

By Melissa Flippin, Owner/Artist at Flippotential Custom Finishes in Wheelock, TX.

This exquisite dresser was brought to me with a request to make it Turquoise and incorporate some gold accents. 

I painted it with GF Patina Green and applied one coat of GF HP topcoat.  Next, I applied different areas with Van Dyke Brown glaze to give it some depth. I did very light distressing on the edges and trim. I used gold Gilding wax on the existing hardware as well as the trim between the drawers. Then finally I sealed the whole piece in HP topcoat. 

Turquoise and Gold- mission accomplished!
