Pantone named Emerald Green the Color of the year for 2013
Well you can imagine my excitement then, when I saw the first case of CeCe Caldwell’s Emerald Isle Paint on my pallet.
I’m sure the guy on the dock thought I was totally goofy when he saw me beam from ear to ear. After we offloaded the pallet, I grabbed a dresser from the workshop and busted into a can.
In this picture the paint is drying, the drier parts are lighter.
This is what it looks like after a coat of Emerald Green sealed with Clear Wax.
You can see how I applied the wax in this video
I decided I wanted to antique it with dark wax. You can see the difference where I’ve applied it.
This isn’t a very good picture, it looks all funky because the dark wax isn’t completely dried. I was losing light, so I’ll try to get some better pictures tomorrow.
I think the close up shows it best.
Well, what do you think? Do you have somewhere you can add a splash of color?
