Antique Glaze On Painted Furniture. The key here is to keep your hand light. Glazed Painted Tables.
For this piece we decided to use Graphite. You will achieve a better result in antiquing wood if you keep your hand lighter. Combine brown paint and water as a wash.
If you remove too much toner just apply more then wipe down again.
Applying paint with a paint brush creates peaks and valleys that will be more visible when you apply the stain resulting in a more accurate antique. Use a dry rag or a slightly damp rag depending on how much toner you would like to remove. Im the person on both our sides of the family that gets the call to rescue furniture pieces whenever theres something vintage that isnt wanted or needed anymore. Thick paint coats could make it more difficult to sand and obtain the result you wish to see.
