Distressing Frames For Watercolors
Matting my watercolors
Applying primer to the frames followed by candle wax in selected areas
Applying the first layer of colors over the primer. After this layer is dry I sand and use steel wool to get the desired effect and then reapply candle wax to selected areas
After the final layer of paint is applied I once again sand and use steel wool to expose the layers of paint, primer and wood below. Once I have received the effect I desire I add a coat of butchers wax.
