I've done the same technique for years, paint and then sanded the wood and then weathering wood. Have you always wanted to learn how to aging wood? You already know techniques? But did you know this method !?
HOW TO DO:
1) Apply vaseline (petroleum jelly) everywhere you want to see natural wood
2) Then cover the entire piece of wood with the paint of your choice: Painting in acrylic, oil, or spray paint ...
3) Let dry
4) With a dry cloth, wipe the paint
5) All the places where you will have applied the petroleum jelly will take off in no time to let see the natural wood!
Now you know how to weathering wood!
