Tutorial "Shabby Chipboard"

Paint chipboard with dark brown acrylic paint (Dusty Attic Hot Chocolate).

When the paint dries take a candle and rub it against all corners. Dust away the remains of the wax - no white crumbs should be left on the surface!
  Then cover everything with white acrylic paint  (Dusty Attic Navajo White ). You may apply a few layers.
When everything's dry to touch, we begin the most intriguing stage.
Use a piece of sand paper or a nail file to wipe away the paint on the waxed places. Be gentle - you don't want to sand away everything to the core. Don't be too passioante with sanding, it should look natural, so some places need only a light touch.
