Country Living Artisans Collection

The Country Living Artisans Collection introduces Distressed for Success - Don't just paint your project, tell a story with distressing using Caromal Colours.  No stripping, sanding, or priming prior to starting your project.  Click here to read more on the Caromal Colours website about distressing.

Here are the 12 different colors Caromal Colours has to offer:

  • Mustard
  • Bayberry
  • Parchment
  • Candy Apple Red
  • Wisteria
  • Cobblestone
  • Putty
  • Paprika
  • Peppercorn
  • Colonial Blue
  • Pumpkin
  • Chocolate
The bottom row is Peppercorn over Candy Apple Red, Bayberry over Paprika, and Parchment over Mustard.  The longer piece of moulding is to show the steps in the process when using 2 basecoats.  The far right section is the Peppercorn basecoat.  Next is with the chipping cream applied.  The final is Pumpkin over Peppercorn with toner applied over the top. 

Sign up for one of my workshops to learn to distress your old or new furniture pieces, moldings, architectural elements, cabinets or accessories. Because our materials stick to almost every surface, this technique can add vintage character or primitive charm to almost anything in your home.  Email me to find out when my next workshop is.
