Distressed Paint Color Combinations: 100s of Examples

In the following faux finish examples, several layers of GF Milk Paints, GF Glaze Effects, GF Wood Stains and GF Top Coats are combined in the tradition of old world craftsmen to create unique, distressed looks in any color palette. Today's designer finishes often use up to seven different layers of color and topcoats to create spectacular finish designs. The work goes fast, as water based finishes dry much more quickly than oil based finishes. Choose from any of these designs or create your own.

All base colors are two coats. Always use a coat of topcoat between colors to prevent color blending. Finish your piece with 2 to 3 coats of water based topcoat. Visit water based finishing tips for more details.
