Using a 1.5″ straight brush, paint your table! I varied how thick I painted on the milk paint. I only did one coat so the green and stain would really show!
Using your 1 1/2″ straight brush, dip in the antiquing glaze, then dab it onto cardboard or a paper plate to get rid of some of the excess solution. Then working your finger up from the back of the brush to the front, flick the glaze onto the piece. The milk paint will react with this antiquing glaze; lifting and cracking the paint from the Gesso!
Dip your “natural sponge” into water so it is back to its natural state of being spongy. Ring out any excess water, then dip into your antiquing glaze and dab onto your furniture piece. You will be removing your paint, so dip your sponge often to keep it clean! Learn from my mistakes- I used the back and forth motion too much. Dab at the area to avoid the streaking.
