The sexy curves of Bombay chests are always appealing to my eye so when I saw this one, I wanted to turn it into a beauty. I wanted to try the "water color" blending technique I had watched a tutorial on so I gathered a few colors I thought would look good together. As soon as they went on the plate, it spoke to me. It was "heavenly" so I decided to name this piece, "Angel".
I applied a base coat of AS Paris Grey, then I used Glacial by Wise Owl, Paloma by Annie Sloan and Old Ochre by Annie Sloan. I had a cup of water and 2 separate brushes. I dipped my brush in the water, then in color and applied like a "wash". I worked in sections and repeated this process for each color, using same brush. When I was done with a section, I used a dry brush to blend. I then used Modern Master Warm Silver Metallic paint for the details. Sealed in General FInishes High Performace Top Coat (like most of my pieces)! I used IOD Stamps for the sides of the drawers... used WIse Owl Glacial and sealed with their wax stick.
