So, I've started this thing where I feature paint colors that I like to use on my trash to treasure and other projects. I'd noticed that I used the same paint colors over and over and I thought it'd be kinda cool to share them here since the stuff I list on Etsy, where those colors were used, tends to "fly off the shelves". I mean, if my customers liked these colors, it stands to reason that my readers and bloggie friends would too.
Really, there were only around four colors that I was using a lot, and so I'd only planned to do this color thing for as many weeks, but the feedback on these color posts has been so great that I've decided to carry on and share a new color with you each week. This will help all of us (you guys and me) discover new paint colors. I tend to play it safe and use only the colors that sell, but I believe this will help me climb outta that box. I will try to have at least two projects to show with each color post, which means I'll be cranking out at least two Etsy items a week.
As for the paint I'll be using, I like some Folk Art colors and I've really been into Martha Stewart colors lately. It seems those are the only two brands/colors that I've shared so far, but they won't be the only ones forever. I don't want to limit myself because there are tons of other colors/brands out there. I do think I'd like to work my way through Martha's paint palette (you can pick up a complete palette, with all 280 colors, at Home Depot), though I will definitely not be trying all of them.
Anyway, the color I'm sharing this week is another Folk Art color that I've used a few times. It's called Patina and it works beautifully with antiquing glaze. Of the projects below, all, except for the last one were glazed.
I hope you're all having a great week! I'll be back on Friday with a scouting post. A few of us in SC, NC & GA are looking to find fellow bloggers from the area. If that's you, keep your eyes peeled for that post.
