Red Gold Buffet
FOR SALE. Msg me if interested.
This was the first time I used this bright red on a piece. I thought it would go really well with the flowers. And it does! I also wanted to add lots of shimmer of gold.
The buffet was painetd in honky tonk red by Dixie Belle paint.
The transfer is called Rose Celebration and you can purchase it in my Online Store. It is an amazing transfer and can be cut up and used in whatever pattern you want. You can see the other pieces I have done with this transfer. When you buy a transfer from me I will send you all my tips on working with the transfers.
The gold is gold leaf. I used Artisan Enhancements leaf and foil size to adhere the leaf.
It was all sealed with Modern Masters dead flat varnish (except the gold leaf).
First, I washed and cleaned the piece.
Then lightly scuff sanded.
Then did a coat of primer tinted a light gray.
Then two coats of the paint.
Then applied the transfer. I have videos on my Facebook page of how to apply the transfers.
I then put on the gold leaf. You don't want to lay the leaf down in columns. IT is best to lay it here and there, sometimes overlapping.
Then sealed it all with the varnish. I did not seal the gold leaf as I find when you seal it it turns cloudy. This is not a piece that you can put hot dishes on. This piece will sit regally in a room and just look beautiful.
