Making a Rose Gold Metallic Furniture Paint

Did you know that you can mix Metallic Paints from The Couture Collection to create a new color?

Today I mixed our Couture Copper with our Brilliant White Metallic Paints to create a “Rose Gold”  This color is being seen this year in Home Decor, accessories and even the new iPhone!

Here is how to mix it:

two 4 oz. containers of Couture Copper from The Couture Collection!

one 16 oz.container of Brilliant White from The Couture Collection!

Stir metallic paints well, the mica separates from the acrylic base and needs to be stirred well.

I made a sample first of this Rose Gold and I loved it.  You can see it on the molding.

I decided to paint a beautiful small table.

First, paint one coat of Peace Paint Couture!  Allow it to dry. The new Zero VOC Paint Couture formula now only takes 4 hours to fully dry.

There is our Bali Boo supervising as usual!  Notice that lovely inlay on the table.  I wanted to preserve it so I painted around it.

Next, turn the table upside down and paint the underside first with the new Rose Gold mix.  I find this the best way to paint tables.

Paint the legs and the sides, then turn the table over to finish painting.

I wanted to preserve the top but it needed a little something, that is when Champagne Glaze Couture comes in!  This glaze is a very soft metallic glaze and it does the trick!

After the glazed dried, I applied one coat of Satin Lacquer Couture on top to give it more shine and durability.  Our Lacquer is a water based, non-yellowing topcoat.  There is no need to wax, and lacquer is more durable than wax and dries very hard!

I used the Lambs Wool Applicator to apply the Satin Lacquer.

Pour a little Satin Lacquer into a foam plate and let the applicator soak it up, not too much just enough to wet the applicator.   Keep a brush handy in case there are any drips to wipe off.

Glide the Lambs Wool Applicator flat across the surface, from end to end.  Do this twice to make sure to get even coverage, then that is it!  The lacquer should not be overworked, meaning only go across the surface a couple of times, if you keep going over and over it will dry, get stiff and you might have some streaks.  I love the Lambs Wool Applicator because it allows a uniform application and it is easy!

Here she is, full of Rose Gold glamour!

  1. Thank you so much for the post. I bought a cupboard from a garage sale and I have been looking for a rose gold color paint (which I couldn’t find) and as luck would have it, I have stumbled upon your blog.

    I will most definitely give it a try!

    Again, thank you! Have a nice day!
