Hi there, it’s Rosanne here from Country Chic Paint. You may have seen some fantastic project done with our metallic creams but did you know that they can be used for more than just accents? If you’re ready to go bold with your next project, why not add some sparkle to the whole piece? In this video I’m going to give this headboard a glamorous new look so stay tuned to see how it turns out! A few days ago I prepped this headboard and painted it with one coat of Rocky Mountain in our All-in-One Decor Paint My next step will be to put some of our Trigger metallic cream on this paper plate.
I’ll be using this sponge to apply the metallic cream which will create the smoothest finish. Having it on this plate makes it easier getting the product on the sponge. The metallic cream dries rather quickly so on flat surfaces you want to apply it in long, even strokes for the smoothest look.
Around the spindles of the headboard I’ll be pushing the sponge into the grooves to make sure I’m getting the metallic cream everywhere. I’m going to let this coat dry for about an hour or two before going on to the next step.
Now that the Trigger metallic cream is completely dry I am going to be using this large, short-handle paint brush to apply Silver Bullet metallic cream on this piece Again, I’ll put some of the metallic cream on a plate, then I’ll apply it to my piece without worrying about covering every single inch Next I’m going to take this lint-free rag to wipe away the Silver Bullet metallic cream so that I’m just leaving a wash behind I’m simply trying to give the Trigger metallic cream finish more depth by adding a second color This is just one of many techniques you can use with the metallic creams.
I’d love to encourage you to play around with our four different metallics and combine them together in layers to create unique finishes. They are very versatile products and will definitely give your piece that one of a kind look.
