Happy New Year!! – Table featuring Vintiques “Mint Julep”

Good morning and HaPpY NeW YeAr!!!! I think this table has the most products I’ve ever used on one little piece. LOL. I broke down the the products and the process I used below. I love the end result. You can never really go wrong with mint!

Thee Velvet Glove featuring Vintiques Mint JulepThe color I used for the base of the table is Vintiques Mint Julep. For the top coat on the base I used Aurora Staining Gels in Island Paradise. The carvings were painted in layers including Vintiques French Blue, then Heirloom Traditions Synergy and finally Heirloom Traditions Sand. I then took some 220 grit sandpaper and distressed the Sand back a little to reveal the French Blue and Synergy underneath.

The Copper Mine over the Mellow Yellow gives off a gold color. Wala! All done.

  1. You already know I love this piece, Lori. However, it’s worth repeating: LOVE IT. The way you build layer upon layer of pigment, then distress with a deft hand to reveal the colors so gently…you’re an artist with great imagination and a fantastic design sense. Have an Awesome New Year!

  2. I just love your work! This is lovely. Are the carved pieces original ? Looking forward to seeing what you do in the new year….bring us inspiration !!
