How to Use Metallic Paint in Pacific

As much as I LOVED this painted china hutch in its organically color-washed roses finish (see that HERE)……it just wasn’t speaking to others. It has been in my shop and taking up space for months!  That makes me sad….as I paint my pieces for others to use and enjoy….not sit in my shop under a sheet!

This brings me to my BFF……here for a visit….and in need of a new and somewhat large piece for a sitting room in her home! I offered to repaint it!  If it meant she would like it….and could enjoy it…..that meant more to me than hanging onto my personal vision for the piece.

With her help…..we repainted this hutch in just under two hours….inside and out!  We painted right over the existing rose design transfers.  We did not prime it in any way!  We did paint one coat of Driftwood over the transfers just to help to fully block the rose designs. So let me tell you about this new paint!!!

Products Used:

  • Moonshine Metallics in Pacific
  • Best Dang Wax in Black
  • Driftwood
  • Big Mama’s Butta in Suzanne’s Garden

How To:

Dixie Belle Paint company JUST released several new colors to their Moonshine Metallics paint line….and this new blue called Pacific is out of this world!!!!  It went on with such ease!  Its creamy texture lays down easily and the brush strokes are minimal with its self-leveling ability!  We painted just two coats and done!!  The coverage is worth bragging about.  It dried so quickly that we were able to lay down the second coat within about 40 minutes!

As soon as the second coat dried…I was able to wax the entire piece from top to bottom in Best Dang Wax Black!  The metallic paint withstood the wax application like a champ…for just having been painted!  I waxed and wiped back with no issues at all!

We painted the inside of this metallic blue china cabinet with Driftwood.  It took only ONE coat to fully cover the existing Terracotta color…which blows my mind!  We sealed the inside with Big Mama’s Butta in Suzanne’s Garden which is a lovely rose garden scent!

We’re loving this project!

Brandy is using the Patina Collection tonight!

Say hello and tell us where you’re from!

Thanks so much Brandy!

Hi Brandy! We’re so excited for this video!

Make sure to use Prime Start on metal before using patina!

This is great.😍❤️

Paint hands r the best hands 🙌🏼

I noticed that the spray For the patina paint had a vinegar smell. I was wondering if apple cider vinegar would cause the same reaction with the patina paint? just curious😁

I just came in. Is the brown painted, or are you at the very start of a new project?

Dang, I don’t remember anything that said you shouldn’t leave the sprayer in the bottle! I guess I need new sprayers now🙁

Your shows are awesome! Makes one think we can get better at it.

Sean, Brandy said you next to never get mad; you sound like my husband!

If I wanted to use the corrosive patina sprays in controlled areas such as the corners of doors, would it be best to sponge it on, brush it on or stipple it on? I want to make sure that I’m able to control where it goes on my next project.

My son is 17 but every year I still hide a box in the back under the tree with a Christmas bell in it. He loves it!

What a great finish for this piece. I will need to look from beginning later. Seeing your reflection on the

Evening Kollenborns!! I just love patina paint!! I can't wait to see the results!!😁💚

Don't worry Sean - we're all here and I'm sure you look lovely as usual!!😁💚

My retailer has the silver but only one step of it. I wasn’t painted when the old metallics were around so I’m not sure if I need both steps or can I use just the top coat of the silver. Any advice?

Right now it looks like an angry storm at sea! It's gorgeous <3 <3

Thank you! I absolutely LOVE these colors!

I LOVE this. I have wondered how to do patina on furniture. I can't wait to do this!!!!

Hello from Oxford MS! My Old Silver has a top coat and base coat, which are you using?

Hey Brandy and Sean!! Love the Polar Express!! Patina on the bell would be amazing!!

Yes Angie use Slick Stick on your tiles first!

Say hello and tell us where you’re from!

Slick Stick is perfect for slippery surfaces!

Definitely clean with White Lightning first!

Pam is using Sawmill Gravy tonight!

Thanks so much! Great job!

We love Woodubend!

Hi Pam & Bill!

Great tips!

Pam is painting with Sawmill Gravy!

If your cabinets are laminate or a slippery surface use Slick Stick first! If you’re worried about bleed thru, use BOSS!

Pam is using Sawmill Gravy! We love this color!

Yes I have a marble top piece I’m about to do !

Love that trim

Hey gurl!!!!

I was told never to use SS on wood and to never use SS and BOSS that true?

Now you got me singing those songs...... I'm just a bill on capitol hill is now playing through my head...LOL That little cartoon bill singing on the steps.

Oh good gosh. It was awful. The tech, not Bianca. She’s awesome. We’ll chat.

I love these videos. I'm a visual-tactile learner, so these teach me more than a thousand how-to books.
