Paint and distress a wooden frame to add a rustic look to a treasured photo.


    • water container
    • palette or plastic plate
    • paper towels
    • 3/4" flat brush
    • fine-grit sandpaper
    • wooden frame
    • alphabet and number stencil
    • sponge pouncer



    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    1. Basecoat the frame using a 3/4" flat brush and Lamp Black.
    2. Use the 3/4" flat brush and Saffron Yellow to paint a light second layer on top of the Lamp Black.
    3. Use a dry 3/4" flat brush and Jack-O'-Lantern Orange to lightly sweep paint over the frame.
    4. Place the stencil on the bottom of the frame to spell out desired phrase. Use a stencil brush to pounce Lamp Black onto the frame. Let dry.
    5. Use sandpaper to rough up frame. (Sand a little more on the edges.) Be careful not to over-sand.
