Steps For Using Chippy Paste:
- Paint your piece with desired paint with one to two coats of paint and allow to dry
- Apply Chippy Paste at random in areas of natural wear or apply over entire surface and allow to dry for at least 30 minutes
- Apply a final coat of paint using milk paint without a bonding agent. You may apply more than one coat if desired and allow to dry.
- Using a fine grit sandpaper, lightly sand the entire surface, allowing the paint to chip and flake off. If you applied over the entire surface, you will want to gauge the level of “chippyness” desired and stop removal of paint when you have reached the desired look
- Seal with Real Milk Paint Finishing Cream in either Dead Flat or Low Sheen. If you applied the chippy paste over the entire surface, you can use the Finishing Cream as a decopauge medium to hold the paint and stop any additional chipping and flaking.
- Antiqued using Espresso Burnishing Glaze, if desired
