Pearl Plaster Croctop Dresser and Workshop!


Pearl Plaster by Artisan Enhancements has been flying out the door at our shop.  
This dresser might be why!
I created a crocodile surface using the Pearl on the top of this dresser
 using a croc stencil that we carry in house as well.
 Its very chic!  
Pearlized and luminous, the top has a dimensional raised crocodile surface now.
 Colin took my photo as I moved the stencil along the
 top of the dresser and applied Pearl Plaster over the stencil using
 a flat rubber spatula.  Pressing the Pearl through the stencil and smoothing it, 
but leaving enough to have a layer with dimension. 
 Here is the top one third of the way done. 
 I had dry brushed pearl lightly over the surface of the dresser 
before I did the stenciling so the effect would be a bit softer 
and have more dimension.

This would be getting a dark wax finish when done.
 After the stenciling was completed and the Pearl Plaster had dried, 
I used Annie Sloan's clear and dark wax on the surface.
This dresser looked amazing!! 
We set up an elegant european style vignette just for her.
 On the drawer fronts you can see the insert areas were done with the pearl plaster
in a straight application, not using a stencil.   
We use the Pearl Plaster straight out of the jar in a dry brush fashion.
The top of the dresser took one 8 oz jar to complete the project.
So do you want to take your piece of furniture to another level?
