The 70s Called

They want their orange couch back.

This started out as a “I am trying to get in the fall mood but summer is over and, I’m not fooling anyone, I hate fall” design and became a 1970s throwback pattern instead. So, there you have it.

After a bottom coat of orange, I laid tape down over the top and painted the copper, then tried to peel it off and do the beige when it was dry.

Long story short, don’t do it that way. Cut a strip of tape the size of the middle stripe and just paint carefully along the top and bottom. Peel off while still wet. The wetter when you peel and the thinner your polish coat, the sharper the line.

For this design I used:

– Revlon Tangerine (base coat)

– Color Craze Desert Dune

– China Glaze Kalahari Kiss
