    • soft cloth

    The large frame was already painted gold. If you want same look, paint frame Glorious Gold before proceeding.

    The small frame was already shiny metallic gold. If you want same look, paint frame with Splendid Gold before proceeding.

    1. Large Frame: Use chip brush to paint frame Treasure. While paint is wet, wipe back with wet soft cloth, allowing Treasure to show through on raised areas and to remain in recesses.
    2. Medium Frame: Paint entire frame Heritage. Let dry.
    3. Small Frame: Randomly paint frame Serene, allowing frame's original gold color to show through.
    4. Finishing: Use waxing and finishing brush to apply Clear Crème Wax over each frame individually. Let wax dry and then buff with soft cloth.
    5. Finishing: To antique small and medium frames, use brush or cloth to apply Deep Brown Crème Wax over buffed Clear Crème Wax, working one small section at a time and buffing as you work.
