26 May Cool New Looks with Mississippi Mud, Pinkerington Violet & Texas Prairie
Have you seen some of the new colors from CeCe Caldwell’s Paints? What?? You haven’t? Don’t worry, you’re not the only one because these colors are brand new and are just being released.
Let me share a few of my new favorites. First is Mississippi Mud. It’s a beautiful light caramel color. In this photograph, I layered it over Hershey Brown, then rubbed it back to expose the brown and the parts of the original grayish/white color. The wax isn’t quite dry in this photograph. The color looks wet in the areas where the wax hasn’t completely dried. Once dry, it will all be the color of the inside of the swirly-do.
I love it! I can see this used in so many different applications in my own home – ha! As if that ever happens, you know how that goes.
In the next picture the wax has dried but it hasn’t been buffed yet. A light buffing will deepen the color somewhat and add really nice richness to the color and patina.
Another one of my favorites is Texas Prairie. This is a pale sage green.
CeCe Caldwell’s Aging Wax is so easy, wipe on – wipe off. Just make sure you’ve mixed it up really well from bottom to top all the way through the first time you use it.
- Cinco Bayou Moss – a rich olive green
- Johnston Daffodil – a buttery pastel yellow
- Kentucky Mint – this minty green is beautiful
- Portland Rose – a pretty pastel pink
If painting isn’t your thing but you have a piece of furniture you’d like painted in my style of painting, let me know.
