The Method

1.       Apply basecoat of Florence Chalk Paint®.
2.      Once basecoat is completely dry, apply a topcoat of Duck Egg Chalk Paint®.
3.      When the Duck Egg topcoat is dry to the touch, begin distressing with your preferred distressing tools. The distressing process will reveal the Florence basecoat beneath the Duck Egg topcoat.
4.      After you have finished distressing, seal your piece with Annie Sloan's Clear Soft Wax using your wax brush and buffing cloths.
5.      Add touches of Annie Sloan Dark Soft Wax to areas like doors and drawers, to enhance patina for a more authentically aged finish.
