Latex paint , baking soda,soy sauce, and car wax...don't judge me, I'm cheap...lol
just mix 3 - 4 cups paint with 1 cup baking soda in a blender or mixer.paint your item ,let dry.Then apply wax...let dry..antique it with glaze or soy sauce , wipe off excess.let dry. rough up with steel wool or sandpaper.
it is still a little wet in this pic, it dried matte, but if you want it to stay shiny, just buff it with a dry rag.
|I get a few extra packs of soy sauce every time I get chinese, and it's free antiquing!!..there is so much salt and preservatives in it , it will never spoil.You can mix with a squirt of school glue to make it thicker also...|
