Hey there, everyone! It’s Brandy from Brushed by Brandy! I got to paint this dreamy dresser alongside the ultra-talented Llewellyn Krastev of Worn to Whimsy, an absolute privilege. My customer wanted a night sky theme with a golden glow.
- White Lightning Cleaner
- Clear Boss Primer
- Dixie Belle Paint in Midnight Sky, In the Navy, Bunker Hill Blue, Vintage Duck Egg, Lemonade, Holy Guacamole, and Fluff
- Dixie Belle Satin Clear Coat
- Best Dang Wax in Black
- Silver Gilding Wax
- Big Mamma’s Butta
Step 1 :
We started by cleaning with White Lightning and applying 2 coats of Boss primer. I could tell by how this was cleaning, the age, and the dark color, it would be a bleeder. I applied the Boss in a cross hatching pattern for thorough coverage.
My first coat was a swirling of darker blues around the outside, lightening as they moved in. A pretty finish on its own!
Next, we added clouds to our night sky, using fluff and working them in while slightly damp. The softness of them is mesmerizing.
Stars were next. My secret to a starry night sky?? A toothbrush!
That’s right, used as a spatter brush, it’s perfect. Filled in with larger spots, galaxies, and fancier 6 point stars using an artist brush. I even hid the big dipper, little dipper, and Polaris on the front, can you find them??
