Tips from Barbara’s How To Distress Furniture Tutorial:
Use your Beeswax to create a resist between the layers of paint. Place the Beeswax in the high areas where a piece would naturally distress over time.
When you are distressing your piece with the sand paper, use a light hand and be careful not to sand all the way through to raw wood. The Beeswax should make removing the top layer of paint easy, so there’s no need to overdue it.
Always be sure to clean your piece with a de-greaser like Fusion Mineral Paint TSP before you start painting. Paint does not stick to dirt. A clean piece will help ensure a professional and durable finish. Learn more about properly prepping furniture for paint HERE!
