Red Ruby Beauty

This ravishing red beauty is available in my Etsy store.

For this french provincial piece I painted her in different shades of reds and dark gray with metallic paint on top.

I started by cleaning the piece well. I then painted emperor's silk on the top part, burgundy in the middle area and graphite on the bottom portion of the dresser (Annie Sloan paints). When blending paints I use a spray mister bottle with water. There should be some YouTube videos on my channel of paint blending if you want to check them out. Usually I let the paint drip and leave drips showing.

Once the paint sits for 24 hrs I then put on the furniture transfers. These are from Iron Orchid Designs. I used Le Petit Rosier, Redoute 2, Redoute 4. You want to make sure you adhere the transfers really well before you put on the topcoat. Just go over them all with your fingers, pressing well everywhere. You could also use a soft cloth and press them all down well. I did put some transfers on the top of this piece too.

I then added Modern Masters gold metallic paint in a dripping method. You just need to use the misting bottle to make the drips. I might have put a clip on YouTube on this. Or check out my Instagram for a reel.

I sealed the whole piece with AS clear wax. I put on one coat then wait 24 hrs. before putting on the 2nd coat.

If you need guidance with waxing I do have lots of how-to videos on my YouTube channel.
