Glaze Effects

This little beauty has had quite the transformation. First our followers helped us choose the color & ultimately decided on General Finishes Milk Paint in Basil Green. We used Antique White for the highlights & the results were good, but it felt a little unfinished. A quick shadowing with General Finishes Pitch Black Glaze added some incredible dimension & was the perfect finishing touch!!" - Captiva Home Decor
