    Ok I’m ready to start! Got my One Step Paint color, got my Antique Light Wax, got my Antique Dark Wax, question, I didn’t purchase the Dust of Ages my piece doesn’t have much in the way of crevices will that keep it from having an antiqued look, did you use the Dust because of your crevices or did that help with the overall look?

    • therusticlife says:

      Hi Eva, i’m so happy you are going to start a project. Yes, the dust of ages was because of the nooks that I had, since you don’t have much in the way of crevices, skipping the dust of ages is OK.
      XO Sandra

    My paint is so thick like clay. I stirred with a paint stirrer and now it looks like soupy mashed potatoes with tiny lumps all in it. What am I to do? Use an electric mixer? Discouraged!

      Hi Beth, when and where did you get your paint? Did you shake it REALLY well and leave it turned upside down for 10-15 mins before using. Also you have to stir it really well. Let me know about all this.
