12 Aug How to Create a White Wash – Limed – Weathered Paint Finish
Dip brush into thinned paint and dab off on paper towel. Make LONG, strokes in the direction of the grain. While still wet, lightly dip the very tips of the bristles into the paint blob on the paint and dab so it’s not globby and thick anywhere. Again, do very long strokes all the way across the piece of furniture without lifting if possible. You’ll achieve much better results if there is hardly any paint on the brush. It’s a lot easier to add more than it is to apply it to thick and then have to wipe some off.
I recommend messing around with this on a scrap piece until you get the hang of it. I basically do this same technique for white wash, weathered wood and liming.
