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!
The 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.
For the shading I used Vintiques Spray Wax in Antiqued Brown, (I poured it in a dish and used a small brush to get in the crevices around the outside of the carvings where dust and dirt would normally rest) then added some Aurora Staining Gel in Copper Mine, Mellow Yellow and a little Aging Dust. The Copper Mine over the Mellow Yellow gives off a gold color. Wala! All done.
