Tip #4 – When layering Junk Gypsy™ Paint with a few colors, paint the top layer in a thinner coat so it can easily be distressed to reveal the color or colors underneath. Paint can also be dry-brushed on or distressed to reveal the wood underneath. To find a Junk Gypsy™ Paint retailer near you, check out the map finder here.
