Do you have instructions on how to use these?- Asked by Carol D on 16-Dec-13
To create an antiquing effect, apply a thin coat of translucent stains and wipe away with a soft cloth. To remove more of the color, dampen the cloth with water. The stains will sit in any recessed areas as a darker tone while the wiped away areas will retain a lighter value of color. Clean up easily with water. Seal with a ceramic spray or brush-on sealer such as Duncan's Spray Sealer or these sealers that do not require firing in a kiln.- Answered by MisterArt on 17-Dec-13
