You are in for a treat today! I am sharing one of my favorite tricks in waxing!
Today I wanted to introduce you to using three of the top coats in the line, Antiquing wax, furniture wax, and hemp oil.
Take a look at the before:
You got to see some of the process of this awesome project in the chippy series.
It started with a coat of Ironstone:
After some natural chipping, and hand distressing, it was looking beautiful, but I wanted to age it a bit. The white was just a bit to bright for what I was envisioning.
This process is one of my absolute favorites on aging flat surfaces.. Miss Mustard Seed did an excellent tutorial on how to build up age on ornate pieces, and here I wanted to show you some options on how to do it on flat surfaces.
Glazing and antiquing can look very streaky and contrived, so this method of fanning the two together works like a charm.
I thought I would show you in a video tutorial for more visual instruction!
The end result is just gorgeous, and not too dark, not too light!
I love the built up age and natural looking distressing it has.
And the after….
