Wander Dresser using Iron Orchid Designs products

This dresser was refinished with bright coral paint and all sorts of Iron Orchid Designs transfers, stamps, and inks. 

Here is a list of what I used.( some items are discontinued,they will be noted with a *)

The paint is a mix of Coral colors I had around the workshop. The Coral from Fusion Mineral Paint would work too. Coral Fusion Mineral Paint 

I added the wording with the Typesetting Stamp 

The flowers are the Wander transfer

There are bits of handwriting from the Kindest Regards stamp. This stamp is a must have for your stash!

I used the trim area with diamond shapes from the Prim and Trim transfer *

I used Iron Orchid Designs Black, and China Blue Inks for the stamping and to put smudges of color on the drawers and here and there.  TIP: When using the IOD inks let them dry a full 24 hours before brushing on top coat. I use a heat gun or blow dryer to make sure it's dry and set. Spray water based sealers like MinWax PolyCrylic work great to seal first and then let you brush or roll on a liquid sealer without smearing the ink. 

I used an IOD brayer with a very light coat of IOD Mixing White ink and rolled it around to make highlighted areas. 

The knobs were highlighted with Plaid Liquid Gold Leaf paint* but you can use Fusion Mineral Paint metallic paint in any of the gold shades, rose gold would be beautiful 

I sealed it with a coat of Fusion Mineral Tough Coat in Matte finish. Lightly coated and let dry two to three times. 

No two works are going to look the same so embrace what you like and change others. If you have any questions just email us at bluebirdmercantile@gmail.com
