Sanding/Dry Distressing: Creating the distressed look is easy and can be achieved using one color or combining multiple colors. For one color application, simply paint project desired color. For multiple color application, paint base color first. Allow to dry 2 hours between coats. Paint top color over base color, allow to dry for 2 hours. Once the top paint color is dry, begin sanding to distress using medium grit sandpaper. After distressing a one color application, the base surface will appear. After distressing a multiple color application, the base color will appear.
Wet Distressing: Immediately after painting the top color of paint, use a damp cloth to wipe away paint from areas where distressing is desired. After distressing a one color application, the base surface will appear. After distressing a multiple color application, the base color will appear.
