How to use Chalky Finish Furniture Polish
Something Painted™ Finishing Polish is not required but does add protection and durability and gives the surface a high-sheen.
It’s really easy to get sensational results. Using a cloth or brush apply the polish sparingly. Re-move excess polish. Less is more, so there’s no need to apply the polish too thickly.The polish will dry immediately after you’ve applied it. Work small areas at a time so the polish doesn’t dry before you get to work it in.
To create an aged, rustic effect; apply Something Painted™ Dark Polish over the surface until the desired result has been achieved.
To finish, buff the surface with a dry cloth. Repeat buffing after 24 hours for a shiny look.
