Hey guys. Do any of you ever distress or antique any items? If so what do you use to seal it? Just a Polyurethane or what? My wife is wanting some Breadboxes and Serving Trays done and I don’t know how to seal the paint after I Distress it. Thanks for any help.

If latex paint then water based poly works great, if you are looking for a thick, durable finish. If you just want a seal coat with almost no change in the appearance then shellac.
