A technique that has been adopted by many furniture painters is the application of two different Chalky Finish Furniture Paint colours and when dry lightly sanding or even scouring the top layer of paint to expose the colour below offering a very attractive look breathing new life into old tired furniture.

Create a distressed look by applying two coats in contrasting colours. After drying, sand or scour the surface. Protect the finish with either Rust-Oleum Furniture Finishing Wax or Rust-Oleum Furniture Lacquer.

Stir thoroughly prior to use. The product may be applied by brush or roller. If applying by brush, apply evenly following the grain of the wood. If rollering, use a short nap mohair roller.
