Create the Look Antique Rococo Cabinet:
This Antique Rococo Cabinet look is best achieved when you begin with a medium to dark tone wooden unpainted cabinet or piece of furniture.
- Clean the piece of furniture with Krud Kutter Gloss-Off or Simple Green.
- Using a synthetic brush, like the Zibra Palm Pro Brush, paint 1 coat of Candlelight. Allow to dry.
- Using a water dampened Scotch Brite sponge “distress” the edges.
- To achieve this use the rough side of the Scotch Brite sponge rubbing along the edges of the piece to reveal the wood. Do this on the edges of the drawers, the top, legs and corners.
- Apply Lime Wash glaze with a water dampened Sea Sponge. Next, run the damp Scotch Brite sponge along the previous distressed areas to reveal the wood. While the glaze is still damp go to the next step.
- Using a brush apply Sheer Smoke glaze in the crevices and along the edges only, now “soften” by blending the Sheer Smoke Glaze into the lighter Lime Wash glaze using the Sea Sponge, leaving the edges and devices darker.
- A coat of the Swedish Topcoat is recommended to help protect against wear.
