How to Use Antiquing Creams

Simply apply the cream and allow it to dry thoroughly. Once dry, remove with a damp cloth. Wipe back as much or as little of the Antiquing Creams as you prefer. Buff to a sheen with a soft cloth, or seal with any of the Media varnishes. To seal and stop it from shifting, use a soft brush to apply the varnish. Sealing supplies a barrier so that more layers of Antiquing Creams can be applied.

Antiquing Creams can also be used with the Crackle Glaze. After the crackle has dried, rub in the Antiquing Cream. Once dry, wipe back with a damp cloth.
