Here’s a sneak peek at another of the fabulous new transfers coming soon from Prima Marketing called Somewhere in France. Well, technically, I used only a small part of one of the three transfers that come in this set.
When I unboxed the transfers I immediately wondered how they would look over black.
Although it was a bit difficult to capture in a photo, they are a subtle metallic gold.
Since I wanted to give that a quick test before I planned an entire piece of furniture around one, I decided to try it on an old toolbox that I have.
I got this toolbox from my friend (and picker) Sue. It’s bigger than it might look in that photo at 22″ wide by 7″ tall.
Each of the three sections of this transfer set are about 24″ wide x 9″ tall. So I just used the bottom two lines of one. I simply cleaned the surface of the toolbox and then applied the transfer as per usual.
I wanted to show you guys a close up of how the transfer looked freshly applied.
See that sort of halo or white filmy look around the letters? Well, look what happens when you apply just the smallest amount of Fusion’s Beeswax Finish over the transfer.
It totally disappears. Keep that in mind if you end up purchasing this transfer.
And I have to say, the gold looks positively amazing over black, doesn’t it?
This toolbox sits on a shelf in my living room.
And here’s a little secret, it actually holds all of my waxes and other top coats.
It’s a great way to store my painting supplies, sort of hidden in plain sight. Since I paint in the piano room during the winter, it makes sense to have all of my supplies nearby.
I’ve seen pictures of this transfer used over white and that creates a beautifully subtle look, so I’m definitely going to try that sometime too.
The Somewhere in France transfer is not yet available to purchase. However, this design should be shipping to stores in mid-April so be sure to look for it then.
