Happy St. Patrick's Day!
As the saying goes, everyone is Irish on St Patrick’s Day and to celebrate this lively Irish holiday we’ve rounded up some of our fave golds and metallics from the end of the Shabby Nook rainbow!
First up – our gold paints – take a look at New Gold
from the Autentico Metallic range for full coverage or Gold Digger
from Dixie Belle’s Moonshine Metallics range for a sheerer finish. Did you know you can also make a dreamy rose gold paint by mixing Gold Digger with Rozay
? The fab Fusion Metallics range includes Golds and Rose Gold that give an iridescent shimmer finish.
Gold décor waxes enhance detailed pieces and can be layered to add a custom finish. We love Eternal and Amber Lights from Redesign with Prima! Golden Gem Gemstone Mousse from Dixie Belle is a fab alternative for highlighting detail and embellishments.
Posh Chalk products are a fab place to start for all things metallic! They cover a spectrum of different golds with their Metallic Pastes, Pigments and Patinas – whether you’re looking for a pale gold, a yellow gold or a darker antiquey looking golds, they have you covered!
Sticking with the Irish theme why not try something different and go for a green metallic finish? Moonshine Metallics Deep Woods is a rich, shimmering green metallic paint and there are some gorgeous greens from Posh Chalk Metallic Paste – check out Dark Green, Green Bronze and Green Fhthalo. They’re great for raised stencilling and perfect for adding texture and dimension to your project.
Whatever gold or metallic you opt for, don’t forget to tag Shabby Nook in your painty posts! Sláinte!
Eliza Limburn returns to In the Spotlight this week with this lush cabinet! Eliza painted the body in Flamingo
by Dixie Belle Paint Company and blended slightly with some beige. She created the multi-coloured textured top using Autentico’s Plum
and Antique Turquoise
mixed with Dixie Belle’s Sea Spray
which she dabbed on using a brush and applicator pad. She finished the top with Metallico New Gold
and Anthracite Wax
. It was her first time using Sea Spray and said next time she would make it runnier to aid application but is really pleased with how the texture came out. It’s just so pretty and dreamy! For more paint inspo join our private Facebook Group
