Matte Finish is free of shine,resulting in muted tones and colors. There are many paints,stains and such that can be used in making our items.
Przemila from CanisArtStudio says this original oil painting is painted impasto and knife technique. The image surface is matte and traces of the brush and knife are visible. It is a very noble and decorative technique. The coloring of the image is toned down. Green and shades of gray create an atmosphere of peace and rest. This modern painting will be a perfect complement to modern furniture in your living room, office or other representative interiors. The color of the frame can be chosen according to your preferences.
Sue and Misty from shabbyshopgirls said the 1960s and 70’s brought a wave of shiny metal and plastics into the home and workplace. Prior to that, many objects were natural or flat finish painted wood. These charming wooden snack plates from the 1940s were painted in pastel colors and used in the home or taken on fancy picnics. We love the shape and calming color palette of these highly collectible plates!
spoiledfelines1 from SpoiledFelinesArt states all of the items in our shop, whether burned, carved, or painted, are finished using a matte sealant. The reason that we use a matte sealant rather than a glossy one is that we want the focus to be on the natural highs and lows of the wood, and a matte finish achieves that goal. I chose to showcase the hand burned owl plaque to illustrate the beauty of that can be achieved when using matte sealant on natural wood!
Mairi from mairidesign says the Mediterranean Sea finished off this piece of teal green glass to a perfect matte finish. I collected this piece of glass from a beach near Barcelona and chose it to be my first item of jewelry made from my beloved sea glass collection. Did you know that sea glass is also known as Mermaid’s Tears? So beautiful! Click the photo to read more about the legend of Neptune and the Mermaid.
