How to Use Chalk Paint; step by step instructions...when to use clear wax, when to distress, when to use dark wax

great idea for no sticking when painting. clever.

Used Krylon Looking Glass spray paint to give the window of the door an antique mirror look

I painted Paris Gray over gold frames and let them dry really good. I sanded them with a wet rag and then I used a coat of clear wax and then a coat of dark wax. The trick that I learned from Stacey about taking off the dark wax with clear wax made for a beautiful finish. After I coated the dark wax really good, I took an old t shirt and dabbed some clear wax on it, rubbed over the dark wax, taking off all the excess. The result was amazing.

Love distressing tutorials, it's fun to see how differently everyone does it
