How do I create a distressed look using FolkArt Home Decor Chalk paint?
Creating the distressed look is easy and can be achieved using one color application or a multiple color application. Once the top application of paint is dry, simply begin sanding to distress using medium grit sandpaper.
Sanded or distressed areas are usually found on surface edges where it would appear to have been worn with time. After distressing a one color application, the base surface will appear. After distressing a multiple color application, the previously painted color will appear.
