Lovin me some Moxie Paints
and Meoded Metallic Paints together.
I know it has been a while, can I give an excuse, NO, OK. I am going to anyway. Finally beginning to feel a little normal again from my last reconstructive surgery, if there is such a thing as normal after that, and that has helped me to get back on track. I just thank the Lord I am cancer free.
You would think that by doing 10 different things at once you would accomplish more but not so sure that is true. Just something I have always done no matter how hard I try not to. Planing for all the hands on classes with samples and workbooks, preparing for demo’s, chasing an 18 month old granddaughter, finding furniture, picking up furniture, painting furniture, taking it to my booth, keeping up with 3 Facebook accounts, write in my blog, trying to keep up with product to order and then starting all over again. Ya gotta love what you do or it would be insane to do this. AND I LOVE WHAT I DO.
I wish I knew where the days and weeks go but I am sure that most of you understand that dilemma. So I will not delay any longer but get right to the point of talking about Moxie Paints and Meoded Metallic Paints. Since I have not been doing faux finishing professionally for several years, I have not fully expanded on the use of a few products such as metallic’s into re-purposing of furniture. I was in the process of doing a small table using Moxie Paints in the color Cashmere Sweater, when I received some beautiful metallic colors from Terry with Meoded. Terry had contacted me about trying a few of their metallic paints to maybe do an article about them. I have to say their colors are outstanding,
Guess what, there was a beautiful pink metallic color in the group. Was it suppose to be or what? I say yes.
This is what I started with, ewww
Pretty bland don’t ya think.
Gettin pretty warm here so I had to finish it in the house with some good music playin, of course. Now it is time to grab the paint brush, which I use the Zibra square brush most of the time. They are the best I have ever used.
Moxie Paints stencil relief product called Elevation is so creamy and smooth. Glides on like butter and when you remove the stencil it doesn’t pull the product and leave peaks. Once it was dry, which didn’t seem to take to long, it sanded so easily and gives you a very nice smooth feel. I then dry brushed the Elevation to give it a softer look. Next time I am going to play with tinting the Elevation.
I was just stocked when I received the colors from Meoded and there was this beautiful rich color of pink. I was very pleased at how easily their product is to work with.
Sometimes I am reluctant to say I will try someone’s product and blog about my thoughts because you re not always going to like all of them. Meoded Metallic Paints is definitely not one of those. The colors are amazing and I found them to be easy to work with. I can’t wait to start my next project. I have my eye on the Bronze color next.
The legs are just beautiful with the Meoded Metallic Pink over the Moxie Paint Grey Flannel Suit.. Would be perfect in a little princess’s room. What do you think?
