Other Supplies

Light grit sandpaper, Cotton cloth

Instructions

  1. Wash and dry light removing any dust. 
  2. Basecoat light with Charcoal and let dry.
  3. Apply 2nd color over Charcoal covering completely,  paint with Wedding Cake.  Let dry.  Apply 2 coats if needed.
  4. Sand light to create distressed finish.  This project was sanded more to create a very distressed finish. * sand enough to bring out the Charcoal basecoat.
  5. I recommend mixing 3 parts clear wax to one part antique wax.  Apply to light with flat brush.  Have a soft cloth dipped in clear wax available to move wax around until you get desired antique finish.  Let dry.
  6. Following directions on wax, let dry and buff with soft cloth.
