Gold & Copper
Walls were faux treated with a two color treatment :
1. Pure Powdered Gold Leaf was added to gold paint and a sea sponge was used over existing wall color.
2. Pure Powdered copper leaf was added to copper glaze and dabbed on a second layer.
The walls took on a shimmering glow at various angles because of the metallic leaf added.
3. Patio doors, hallway casing and floor molding were all treated to a dark WOOD GRAINING effect.
4. The fireplace was primed black and then painted with pure powdered bronze leaf.
It was then distressed and a antique patina was applied with the clear over-coat.
Complete with Casing woodgrained, walls with gold & copper metallic glaze treatment & fireplace with bronze treatment
