Start by painting a base colour. This will be the colour that just peeks through on the edges and detail areas of your piece. It could be a soft neutral colour or a fun pop of colour!

Next paint a different colour on top of your dry base colour. This is usually a colour that contrasts your base coat so you have a nice definition when you distress. Could be lighter, could be darker…. It’s up to you!

Using a fine grit sandpaper lightly sand away some areas of your top colour to reveal the underneath colour. You can sand a little or sand a lot.
