Here are three finish styles to try now:
underneath. Make it “unevenly even” with brush marks in every direction.
- Dilute paint with 10 per cent water.
- Apply three coats of paint using a flat brush with a feathered side. This will show fewer start and stop marks.
- Apply wax, and rub off excess.
- Sand back with wet sandpaper to smooth the finish, if you wish to remove brush strokes. Wield the
sandpaper like you’re rubbing lotion on a baby. Start small, you can go back and sand more if desired.
- Use a thick paint, and even let it sit open overnight to thicken.
- Apply a textured coat using a dry brush. Stipple the paint with the brush to create ridges and bumps.
- Use a hair dryer to create crevices and cracks in the paint.
- Once dry, apply a layer of clear wax followed by a layer of dark wax and buff. Excess wax remaining in the cracks and ridges will add to the weathered look.
