Clean the piece of furniture with Polycell Sugar Soap, diluting 100g of soap powder in a litre of warm water. Be sure to wear gloves and use a Scotch Brite pad, available at any hardware store. Once all the oil and grease have been removed, rinse with clean water. Leave to dry, at least overnight.
Sand the surface, wipe clean and then prime using the Multi-surface Primer. Leave to dry for at least 16 hours. For a professional, smooth finish, don’t skip any steps in the priming process.
Using a sponge roller, paint the piece with the Double Velvet Antique Linen and allow to dry. Add half a cup of Double Velvet Train Smoke to a cup of Scumble Glaze. If you would like a slightly darker effect, add a few drops of Raw Umber. Apply the glaze to the surface using the white bristle brush then, using the steel wool, drag in a horizontal direction. When completely dry, reapply glaze and drag in the opposite direction using the steel wool.
