"I'm an Artist. I not supposed to blend in."
We were playing last time with Charred Gold Lusterstone and using it with another Lusterstone, Silver Taupe. For this finish, I will show the Charred Gold versatility and pair it with Venetian Plaster. My finish is starting out with Royal Taupe Setcoat which is a really nice (and on trend) mushroom grey brown shade.
I am using a Sea Sponge Roller to apply Faux Effect's Moonstone Grey Venetian Gem. Using the roller is a fast way to get this texture applied and hides bad walls with flaws/dry wall seams. Dampen the roller first and load the plaster on.
Case in point:
I mixed 1 Cup Aquacreme + 2 TBSP Dark Brown Faux Crème Color + 1 TBSP Brown Faux Crème Color and brushed it over my entire sample. I used a lightly damp cloth to pounce and soften the glaze.
And done! I love finishes like this because the colors blend with so many other things and it works in traditional and contemporary settings. Plus all the products used here are super durable-no need to topcoat! The finish with the Palette Deco is great for darker rooms with poor lighting-it gives an artificial light and glow.
I have to stop here. All this talk of bagels, lattes, and caramel ice cream has me hungry. But I have one more Charred Gold Lusterstone finish to share next time.
