I have been playing with Country Chic Paint Metallic Creams lately and love how they can completely transform an item. They are much thicker than paint, have beautiful opaque colours and are like a rich hand cream. I picked up this old golden frame not long ago for $1 and wanted to change the look of it. Even though I like the gold, I wanted it to be cohesive with a piece of furniture that I will be showing you next week.For this project, I used the Trigger and Silver Bullet Metallic Creams. I had used the Silver Bullet several times before, both straight up and mixed with wax, (see one of the projects here) but had never used the Trigger. To transform the frame, I began by brushing on the Trigger coloured cream. Because of all of the nooks and crannies, I used a brush to make sure I got the cream into all of the tight spots. Once the Trigger was dry and I had the coverage I wanted, I used a cloth to apply some of the Silver Bullet. By using a cloth, I was able to wipe only the raised areas with the Silver Bullet which added some highlights. The highlights with the Silver Bullet were exactly what was needed to finish off the frame to add some depth and dimension.I absolutely love the mix of the gold, dark grey/black and silver and how easy the metallic cream was to use. I can’t wait until next week to show you the large piece of furniture that I recreated with the Trigger Metallic Cream; you won’t want to miss it!
