All that glitters isn’t gold, but then gold isn’t always glittery either. Sometimes gold is a gorgeous, rich, lush, metallic. Just shiny enough to let you know it is a luxury item, and worth taking note of.
From my first brush stroke of Gold Rush, I knew I had found the Motherlode in gorgeous, luxe color. I have been loving all the rich metallic paint projects I have seen around the blogosphere lately. I was thrilled to be able to try out a new color from one of my favorite paint companies.
Although the Gold Rush Color itself is gorgeous, I can never leave anything unadorned. I decided to layer two tones of glaze over my pieces that I tinted with Modern Masters colorants. I used Tobacco Brown, followed by Coffee Bean.I also used the Coffee Bean colorant to darken the hardware, as I had shown in THIS post.
My Gold Rush Matte Metallic pieces are heading down to Paris Flea Market where they will be for sale at our next September sale.Gold is a valuable commodity, luckily I have enough Gold Rush Matte Metallic leftover do paint another project! Since a little gold can go a long way, I was thrilled that a little Gold Rush Modern Masters paint goes a long way too.
I can’t wait to try out more of the new Matte Metallic collection from Modern Masters.
My Gold is shimmering and showing off at these fancy parties this week:
