Mixing it up with Pearl Plaster & Chalk Paint®

I mentioned in an earlier post that Artisan Enhancements Pearl Plaster is now available at Sea Rose Cottage.  Learn more about the magic of Pearl Plaster or purchase here.

Pearl Plaster adds a lustrous, pearlescent quality to furniture and wall finishes.  In its natural state, its shimmery pearl color is just fabulous!

What is also fun about Pearl Plaster is that you can tint it with Chalk Paint® too!  The general rule of thumb is to use 10-15% Chalk Paint® to Pearl Plaster.  Be careful not to thin it down too much.

I was working on a project over the weekend and ended up tinting the Pearl Plaster with a custom mix of French Linen & Paris Grey Chalk Paint®.  The color had a modern zinc-like feel.

After I saw the result,  I became curious about the many Pearl Plaster color variations that can be created with Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan and her rich color palette.

 

While I didn’t mix all of Annie’s 30 gorgeous colors with the Pearl Plaster, I did pick out a few of the more saturated ones.

Like Aubusson Blue and Florence…

Provence and Emile

and Graphite and Old Violet.

I used 1 Part Chalk Paint to 10 Parts Pearl Plaster for my mixes.

I love the beautiful shimmering light blue-grey of Aubusson Blue  & Pearl Plaster.
 The light sparkling spa-green color created with Provence is just exquisite,

and with Graphite, Pearl Plaster creates a wonderful modern silver-grey finish.


Mixing it up with Pearl Plaster and Chalk Paint® is a great way to extend your metallic color range!

Pearl Plaster In Stock!

We are proud to announce that Artisan Enhancements Pearl Plaster is now available at Sea Rose Cottage!

Pearl plaster is a low VOC coating that can be used on walls, furniture and on sealed concrete to achieve an opulent luxurious finish.

Pearl plaster can be painted, rolled, troweled or floated directly onto a surface for varying effects.

If used on wood, it can be dry-brushed onto the surface, tinted with paint, or applied through a stencil.

 The finish resembles velvet with a shimmering pearlescent quality.

The Top 2 samples show Pearl Plaster stenciled over a graphite painted base with dark wax applied over the finish.

The Bottom Left sample is Pearl Plaster dry-brushed over a graphite painted base and then finished with dark wax.

The Lower Right shows a natural wood base, Pearl Plaster applied first and then graphite paint dry-brushed over top.  The wood finish was also sealed with dark wax.

Pearl Plaster, like other Artisan Enhancement products,  is designed with both beginners and experts in mind.  It is easy to use, easy to clean up and earth-friendly.

Best of all, it creates a beautiful, shimmering and professional finish!
