what makes it different from other tattered angels paints?
The formula and the colors were created specifically to work with the natural hues and golden tones of most natural items. The paint can be applied to white washed surfaces (like this frame below) or natural burlap surfaces and the tones are the same, so they look beautiful together.

This once coat paint was formulated to be applied with the paint with your favorite paint brush or you can use a mist sprayer (sold separately for larger or uneven surfaces)
how far will one bottle go?
One two ounce bottle will do one large project, 2-3 medium size projects and 4-6 smaller projects or more. The paint goes a long way and the color is so bright and vibrant after the first coat.
Both of the below projects use about 1/4th of the bottle, so this will give you an idea of how far this amazing paint will go.

This example shows you a faux finish silver look that is amazing on this rustic frame.
do i have to sand or prime the wood before i paint it?
Nope, how cool is that. Make sure the surface is clean and dry and apply the paint with a brush. No need for a topcoat, but you can apply one if desired. There is no need to sand or prime, let the rustic nature of the wood remain, simply brush over the surface and allow the Color Wash to stain in all the right places.
how do i paint a basket or uneven surface?
You can use a brush, but the mist applicator is very helpful to reach many different levels or woven spaces. Remove the lid and add the mist sprayer, shake the bottle and mist onto the surface. Hold the bottle upright for best spray application. This will allow the paint to get into all the nooks and crannies.
can i craft or add EMBELLISHMENTS to the surface after it is painted?
You sure can. The paint becomes part of the surfaces, so you can craft on the surface your favorite way from stencils and rubber stamps to rubber stamping and decoupage. You can glue directly onto the surface, apply stencil paint, give it a try and have a ball. You can dee the detail of the faux finish Old Bronze with a rich brown color and a touch of green patina that is created naturally by the environment. The look is amazing on this rustic wood pallet.
Here is a great example of the 7gypsies Parchment Rub-Ons applied after the Color Wash dried.
