I’m to the finishing stage on a project for the wife and was going to attempt the antique glazed finish,not the distressed but the dark cracks and corners style. Most videos and articles I’ve read or watched online deal more with distressing the piece first. Please read over my process and let me know if i’m doing anything wrong also if anyone has done this style of finish and can offer some advice i would appreciate it.
The project will be sprayed with a layer of seal coat sanded slightly and then have a couple coats of General finishes antique white sprayed on.
Next i was going to spray a clearcoat over the paint, let it dry and then wipe on the general finishes Van Dyke brown.
Finally a couple top coats to finish everything off.
I know I will be making some practices pieces and testing before the main project I figured wise men might have wise words.
here is a quick picture showing some of the decorative moulding. Picture was taken in the build process.
