Are you finished?



Here are some of the recipe card fronts (Signature Finishes by Melanie Royals). Lauren came up with the great idea, I think, to use half of the M shape from the Modern Masters logo to frame in the finish. On the back, there is the product list and photographed step by steps. Sorry, can’t show you those just yet! I also have to thank my friend and decorative artist Kari Caldwell, who assisted my in the studio on these finishes and was incredibly patient with me changing my mind and questioning myself almost hourly. We were SO glad to get to the last step on the 36th sample!!

    Melanie – so excited about the new signature finishes: scattered palms, marrakesh and pressed copper looks right up might alley. It is hard to tell what is going on in the Mondrian. Will it come as a complete package, instructions and supplies?

    Need help trying any products or instructions out? (he he, I am here for you!

    As always, nothing but admiration from Reno. Dorothy

    Hi Dorothy!

    No package, these are just basic instructions and product list for completing a surface finish. “Mondrian” is color blocking by setting up a geometric pattern a’la Piet Mondrian with thin tape and filling in with various colors of Smimmerstone and Metallic paint.
