10 reasons to Switch to Shabby Paints


Directions for Use: Thoroughly clean surface, be sure all grease and oils have been removed first. Stir paint.  Apply with a soft brush or roller.  Let dry then apply a second coat if needed.  If the paint is too thick for your liking add a little water or dampen your paint brush for a smooth finish.  Distressing: Distressing after painting is great for a naturally worn look. Use 80-120 grit sandpaper or a dampened sanding block for easier cleanup.  For a different layered, more chippy aged look, distress after your first coat of Tinted or Sheer Armor has dried. You can control with pressure how many of the previous layers you want to reveal.
