To antique you can use Goopy Paint. It comes in three colors: Black, British Red, and Picture Frame Cream.
First, you add one, or all three of those colors to the item you are antiquing. Goopy Paint is thick enough that the colors won’t run together, so you can add one, both, or all three in one step. Second, you let the Goopy Paint dry. Then, you add a top coat of Old Village Paint, covering the entire piece, including the spots you painted with Goopy Paint. Finally, when you sand the piece, the spots where Goopy Paint was standing up, and you’ll see that color underneath. Suddenly, it looks like you have an antique piece that had many different paint colors used on it over time, (as many as four different colors) and you only painted two layers!
I also wanted to remind you that if you need Black Board paint, to help create something like this cool framed chalkboard shown in these photos…
I have lived a long time and am convinced that God governs in the affairs of men. If a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? I move that prayer imploring the assistance of Heaven be held every morning before we proceed to business.- Benjamin Franklin
