PREPERATION FOR ANTIQUING AND FINISHING:
Apply 1 coat of varnish and let it dry over night ( the varnish will help to control the antiquing better and does not allow the
antiquing-mix to soak into the base }.
Prepare your own antiquing mixture with B + C (2:1), add water or retarder.
Immediately after the application , wipe off the paint with a soft rag. Increase the pressure to achieve some highlighted areas.
When dry apply 2 more coats of oil based polyurethane varnish.
