Creating an Ultra-Matte Finish

Creating a Satin Finish
  1. Brush paint onto clean, dry surface. Apply 2+ coats for full coverage, waiting 24 hours between coats.
  2. After paint has dried, brush on clear sealing wax in small sections, using a soft rag to quickly and gently wipe away excess wax for a subtle glow that helps preserve the freshly painted look.

Creating a Distressed Finish
  1. Brush paint onto clean, dry surface. Apply 2+ coats for full coverage, waiting 24 hours between coats.
  2. Once paint is thoroughly dry, use sandpaper to distress furniture. Focus on corners and edges where natural wear would occur.
  3. When the desired distressing is achieved, wipe away dust and brush on clear sealing wax in small sections, using a clean rag to quickly and gently wipe away excess wax. For a distressed finish with antiqued details, finish with dark antiquing wax to highlight crevices.
