hi there, it's rosanne here from country chic paint today i'm going to show you how to use a really fun product; antiquing dust in this video i'll show you how to create an authentic-looking antique effect using this product so stay tuned to see how it works to show you the stunning effects of antiquing dust today i'm going to be

using the following tools some paint brushes, a wax brush, a lint-free rag country chic paint's natural wax, and of course our antiquing dust. there are five different colors of antiquing dust in our line. first we have aspen which is a pure white secondly is birch which is a subtle light gray. you want to keep in mind that

these antiquing dusts will dry a little bit darker than as you can see them in the jar next up is willow which is a warm dark gray then we have arbutus; a warm orangey brown and last, cedar; a warm reddish-brown. in this video i'll show you all the different colors so you can decide which one is best for your project. when using antiquing dust

you'll want to start with a painted piece. for best results we recommend giving your paint coat 24 hours to dry before applying any wax to it so if you just painted your piece, step back and wait a little while before moving on to the next step today i'd like to show you how you can use the antiquing dust in combination

with the texture powder. in another video you can see how to create this layered finish so make sure you find it on our youtube channel. if you're curious what colors will used, this frame was painted with icicle followed by cheesecake now i'm going to use a country chic paint wax brush to apply a thin coat of natural wax making sure i get it right

into the nooks and crannies. you can also use a lint-free rag for this but i find the brushes easier to make sure that the wax gets deep into the crevices next i'm going to use this paint brush to press the antiquing dust into the wax simply dip your brush into the dust and press it all over your piece, again making sure it goes down into the nooks

and crannies because that's where dust would naturally build up over time now step back and let it rest for about half an hour. after you've given the dust about half an hour to settle into the wax you can use your paint brush again to gently remove the excess dust. now it's ready to be buffed. take a lint-free rag and use circular motions to buff

your finish. so there's that! you can see how big of a difference a little dust makes. now i want to show you all the different colors of the antiquing dust so i've got some of these pre-painted rosettes. four of them are painted in simplicity and the other one is painted in liquorice. again you want to apply the wax on your entire surface and in all the

nooks and crannies again you want to just push it into the wax and then you can leave that for about 30 minutes before you buff the finish so after waiting about 30 minutes it's ready to be buffed. you can use the brush again to remove some of the excess dust and then you can simply buff your finish so this is the color arbutus. you'll see

that the antiquing dust stays mostly behind into the crevices but it gives a hint of color to the flat surfaces as well this is the color cedar this is the color willow that's the color birch so that's our white, the color aspen and there you have it! just look at the difference a little antiquing dust can

make. if you liked this video please leave us a comment or click the like button we also would like to encourage you to subscribe to our youtube channel so you don't miss any of our upcoming tutorial videos. to find out more about our products and where you can purchase them please go to our website by clicking on the link in the video or in this
