Last Monday I was lucky enough to have a creative play day in my Lincolnshire workshop with a truly talented fellow furniture painting artist.

The lovely Michelle Fulbrook, otherwise know as The Painted Pearl came to visit me all the way from Whitstable in Kent. That’s a very long way, so I was super flattered that Michelle would not only want to come and paint with me for the day, but be willing to share her considerable expertise in working with these new materials she kindly shared to create these pieces.

Michelle is very well known and respected within the painting and interior design industry with an outstanding reputation for creating decorative and special finishes so I was in perfect hands to learn something new!

We both worked with Venice by Autentico which is a slaked lime paint. I had previously had a play with it, creating a decorative backdrop for photo shoots in my workshop. We virtually met online over Saltwash and then my rusty nail had caught Michelle’s attention so she wanted to see how my Faded Grandeur technique would work with lime paint.

So what do you think? Can you spot who’s whose? We both worked in the same colours but with every different end results. I am really happy with my photographs of these little French bedsides and wanted to share them with you.

This is all super new but I will share details on colours and technique soon.
