It's the perfect job for Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint!
Letting some of the turquoise peek through seemed like the
perfect solution. To add a bit more dimension I mixed up
Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in Tricycle.
I didn't want the chippy look so I added Bonding Agent.
No sanding or prep required!
Some jobs looks worse before they look better, don't worry!
Then wet-sanding with Hemp Oil to gently pull through the layers of colour.
Just a slight glow of Tricycle and the original turquoise where it was distressed a bit heavier.
The beauty of wet-sanding is not only is it fun and easy,
but it is gentle and prevents biting through the paint too quickly.
(which I have a tendency to do!)
before wet sanding with Hemp Oil and 150-grit sandpaper.
Because I'd added Bonding Agent I had to work a bit at the distressing.
vinegar overnight to remove the layers of paint.
And the final task...adding the Parisian Signboard Stencil to the door.
Then wet-sanded over it to get the aged effect.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
