Layering The Secrets - The Waxless Wonder

 Want to know the easiest and the FASTEST way to weather wood? 
With SeaPaint Secrets. You can paint, stain, weather, glaze, or even “antique” wood in minutes. It’s truly a miracle product, but out of all the magical capabilities of the SeaPaint Secrets, this is my favorite. 

Layering the Secrets is a whole new beautiful crafty world. It yields many results, but because of its unique formula these variety of looks can be achieved in record time. The application process is simple, yet diverse. This diversity feels like magic dripping from your finger tips. It’s a creative freedom like you haven’t yet experienced. 

The best part, is that even beginners can achieve professional faux finishes with zero painting experience. Now that is magic. Just look how simple the process is.

These magical Secrets (previously named SeaGlaze) come in 13 shades, but they are so much more than a glaze. They are the DIY secret. 

You can use them alone or layer them all. Their Jaw dropping 90 second dry timeS enables layers upon layers to be created in time frames you never even thought possible. 

My ultimate favorite layering technique is what I call the Waxless Wonder. 

The Waxless Wonder achieved all of these looks below.

This method enables you to achieve the well worn look of dark wax or weathered wood, without using a drop of wax to do so, let alone attempting the mastery of dark waxing. 

To begin you will need:

1. SeaPaint Secret(s) - choose two shades

2. Mermaid Brush - at least 2

3. Blending Sponge 

4. Damp Sponge - for Dustless Distressing (Optional)

5. SeaGlass Topcoat - to protect painted finish


Now for the fun stuff. 

Step 1. Shake your Secret

Step 2. Lightly dip your mermaid brush into the Secret color of your choice

Step 3.Once dry, brush on your second shade of Secret right over the first shade using long smooth strokes. Let dry.

Step 4. Using your weathering sponge, gently wipe across in long motions, blending the two shades together. For dustless distressing, use the damp sponge or a baby wipe. Let dry.

Step 5. Brush on your clear SeaGlass Topcoat of choice. Let dry for 5 minutes. 

Step 6. None, you're done!

After enjoying the ease of this method, you may never dark wax again. I kissed dark wax good bye years ago. Hello lazy way of life, you are beautiful after all.
