See the completed antique coffee table tutorial peeking in upper left corner.

Country Chic paint color  "bliss" was brushed on using my favorite Cling On brush F40. With a wet cloth I wiped back the raised detailing areas to reveal the gold for a beautiful color combination.




Next are these 2 gold frames



They both had 2 coats of bliss painted on as well.
I was working on the horse statue which was done in a similar color but spray paint.



The ornate frame I did the same wet distressing to reveal those stunning gold details then Country Chic metallic in belt buckle was dry brushed over the paint for even more iridescent glimmer.



On the ridged frame the same metallic was brushed over the bliss to bring out the details!




These are absolutely beautiful in person
