How to Use Rusty Nail

Rusty Nail is just one of the most recent colors released by Dixie Belle Paint.

It is a cross between a red and an orange color. I think its a fabulous boho color, kind of a dark coral if you ask me. It is one of those colors I have been on the hunt for lately!

How To:

This piece I did was an old dresser I picked up and it really needed a makeover… It was the typical cherry wood style…. so yes, a coat of “Boss” on it to block the tannins…

After my coat of BOSS in Clear dried, I used some Caviar on the top, and I applied 2 coats. Next, The base of this dresser I painted in the new Rusty Nail and in the center area I applied some Terracotta.

After some water on my brush and a little blending I achieved the look I was looking for!

The knobs were really old an they needed a little more pizazz… so what better then to add some Patina….

On these knobs I used Bronze and the Green Patina spray. First, you apply a light coat of Bronze paint and let that dry and add another light coat. Then while it is wet you spray it with the green activator.

Its super easy to use. I let them dry and added a light coat of wax to seal them.

Thank you Debbie! You've inspired us to create more mirrors! We love the techniques you demonstrated tonight!

I'm gonna age myself here, but I LOVE drybrushing, been doing it since the years of ceramics! Always thought it would be great for furniture, decorative items, etc.

Thank you so much for showing us how you do mirrors!

Hi from Bridgeville, DE

I love it 😊

Have a blessed weekend

Will definitely start following you!

Hi from Macon Missouri

I bought one 2 weeks ago at a yard sale. It is beautiful. I can't wait to paint if after I finish what I'm working on now. Maybe I will get some good ideas now on what to do

I bet some in the navy would look good added to all the high points after you are done with that blue!! Such a beautiful color you made!!

Those scrolling leaves are called acanthus leaves. They are so classic and are gorgeous with your dry brushing! ❤️

Those details are absolutely stunning !!!!!!!!

I just mixed Manatee Gray with Dixie Belle Blue on my buffet this week. Love making new colors <3

I continue to learn and appreciate all the knowledge. Thank you

Hi, first time watching. From Florida.

I love how the dry brushing is highlighting the scroll work.
