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!

    How many containers of Moonshine Metallics in Pacific did you need in order to paint two coats?

      Hi Suzy! Unless your project is very large, one container should be plenty! 😊
