0 Comments

A distressed finish adds character and enhances detail on otherwise plain accessories. Great painting technique for any project, from Krylon!

Distressed Ivory Painting Technique

Materials:

  • Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Paint - Leather Brown (#52501)
  • Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Paint - Ivory (#51504)
  • Wooden Shelf, Hat Rack or Project of your choice
  • Newspaper
  • Sandpaper
  • Tack cloth
  • Disposable rubber gloves (optional)

Surface Preparation:

  • When working with unfinished wood, prepare your surface by sanding smooth and wiping clean with a tack cloth. Apply a primer to seal the surface.
  • When working with bare metal, be sure surface is free of rust and oil. Apply a primer to seal the surface.
  • When working with plastic, glass or ceramic, lightly sand surface with fine grain sandpaper and wipe clean with a tack cloth. This will help the paint to adhere better to these smooth surfaces. Apply a primer to further improve adhesion.

Steps:

  1. Place project on newspaper to protect work area.
     
  2. Spray one coat of Leather Brown on all sides of project. Let dry.
     
  3. Spray two coats of Ivory on front and sides of project. Let dry thoroughly.
     
  4. Sand raised areas and edges of project to reveal brown paint. Wipe clean with tack cloth.
     
  5. For added protection of your finished project, spray several light coats of Krylon® Matte Finish or Satin Finish as a final step. For projects that will be used outdoors or near a window, use Krylon® UV-Resistant Matte Finish.
