I did just that and made another in black and one with red bole showing through. One of my interiors clients likes it so much that they have commissioned me to do their formal salon in Rio de Janeiro in this finish with an arsenic green base colour. I've never been to Brazil before! I need to source most of my materials locally as their import duty is very high and restrictive.
this is a close-up of the texture. The colour in this picture is rather more peacock than the reality and those blue bits are actually white gold!
