Rust and Lace

A family antique received a complete makeover. The body was first base coated with a mixture of GF Antique White and Driftwood milk paints (to prevent bleed throigh). I then painted in GF Antique white, slightly distressed, glazed with Van Dyke Brown and sealed with GF HP Topcoat  

The drawer fronts were painted with MM iron paint. Then we did a raised stencil with AE Pearl Plaster, lightly tinted with GF Patina Green to create a subtle aqua color. Next, we sprayed MM Rust Activator and let it flow over the raised stencil, then sealed with HP Topcoat. 

The top was done with GF Java Gel and sealed with HP Topcoat.
