Designers Guild – 10 years of paradise colours!Contemporary feel with heavy rustic crazed finishes for Designers Guild book ‘In Town’.
I loved making this collection which ran for 9 years.Cracking and distressing the paint became an obsession. Yet the materials I discovered that worked best were traditional gum Arabic and plaster based paints. These were strapped down with fine damar varnishwith a hint of colour to enhance the final bees waxed patina. The result a powerful fore-runnerof shabby chic! Swashes and swirls of my Santa Fe group.
