Need a quick update to a frame, piece of furniture, a whatnot or whatever?

Well, grab a candle…

If you want a distressed finish, with a contrasting color showing, the wax in the candle will act as a perfect resist to the paint.

Any paint that is layered atop the candle wax can be easily rubbed off with a fine, or high-grit sandpaper or steel wool.

 A little elbow grease (and it will only be a little bit if you let the wax do the work for you )

and you will have a beautiful contrasting, distressed finish!
