Layering Wax Bars
Paint a piece in one color...let it dry. Rub the layering wax bar over the areas you want to distress and have the base coat color to show through. Then paint the second color over the entire piece. Use a cloth to wipe off the areas that you want the base coat to shine through. The wax resists the pajnt and easily comes off revealing the base color. Only sanding can take it back to bare wood.
