In this tutorial I will show you how to mimic the look of the much coveted Anthropologie enchanted dresser. The most it will cost you is a dresser and $50 for the apoxie.

My client bought this dresser for me to use but you can use any shaped dresser. If you want it to look almost exactly like the Anthropologie enchanted dresser, get a wider three drawer dresser with elevated feet.

Luckily this dresser was u finished wood so I dis not need to do any sanding.

i ordered the apoxie off amazon. I used the entire 4 pounds. 1 pound wont be enough. The instructions on the package are very clear on how to use it. You only have 3 hours to work with it. So make sure you have enough time and use just enough for what you can handle in that time. I used 1/4 of the apoxie each time.

You need a bowl or cup of water. This makes the apoxie easier to work with and smooths out imperfections like fingerprints.

You will need a spoon to get the clay out because it’s pretty tacky at first.

I used a knife to put details in the flowers.

I also used a skewer to create more details.

You will need to need the clay very well before using. You use part A and part B 50-50.

To create flower petals I rolled some clay into balls and then pressed it out onto the dresser.

Here is some progress. I followed the picture of anthropology‘s dresser to base where I would put everything.

After the flowers dried up I created a white wash of chalk paint and water 50-50. And just brushed it on making sure to get into all the crevices.

Then I applied clear polyurethane over everything making sure to get in the crevices as well because it will be very noticeable if you don’t.

    I am very impressed with this project. I have a French Provincial style dining room and I was thinking of going bold and painting my furniture pink. This would be an excellent addition to the process. Is it easy for a first-timer to use the clay? I have some experience refinishing furniture, but would love to try it.

    Am i missing something? How did you sculpt the flowers ? Freehand or with a cast? Anyway, quite beautifully done!!

    Did you have to prime the car before you used it?
