When talented finisher Mary Walker wanted some ideas for her own home, we jumped at the chance. First we get to see her wonderful home. Second, since Mary is a great hostess Ashley and I tour the home with wine and snacks. The fun and lively conversation with Mary and Dave is a plus-maybe we should pay them for the consult?
We thinned the FE Rust Kit Designer Rust and Rust Glaze and the FE Verdigris Blue-Green with Aquacreme. After brushing the 3 colors on at the same time, spritz the surface with water and pull tightly with a Japan Scraper. Soften the colors with a dry cloth. This is a linear effect but be careful not to create stripes of similar width. Brushing some areas wider, pulling the Japan Scraper across the surface, and varying how much water you apply will help the finish appear more “organic”.
The final sample with the fabric. Mary is ready to tackle her lower level. Ashley and I can't wait to check it out-remember we work for wine and snacks! Sources: Faux Effects
