I started with charcoal gray since it's one of my favorite color. After painting it, it seemed too dark and ominous. Metallics are a favorite in my workshop so I washed it with loose strokes of gold. It was only after stepping back to inspect the gold that I realized the gold didn't look right. Then I reached for my favorite Ralph Lauren metallic color, Graphite, and loosely painted it over the gold. It was sealed with Varathane Water-based poly.
