Default Distressed Chicken Coop Wood

I did this project a few years ago and have been asked to duplicate it on this home remodeling project. These pics are from the chicken coop turned office. We had to match existing time worn, distressed pine.Distressed Chicken Coop Wood-image.jpeg




^^^^this is new, created using texture paint, etc ^^^

I added texture with a mixture of texture paint and gel medium.

I didnt get very far today; I procrastinated, then realized I bought the wrong color paint; I had to get new paint before noon in the opposite direction of where I needed to be....
Anyway, here are the tools I used to carve out the grain in the texture paint/gel medium application.

Hmm,so I applied two things to the wall and desk.

To add a crackled effect, I randomly applied Hide Glue,let it dry. Once dried I applied a healthy smattering of paint and just let it be. Within a few minutes the paint cracked. I was taught to use flat paint with this application but this time I used egg shell and it turned out fine.

I also applied random strokes of rubber cement to areas that I wanted to remain brown from the stain. In the past I have used wax but had trouble finding the areas that had been treated. Unfortunately it was not any easier using the rubber cement. I did put Post-it notes all over so I could keep track of where I had applied it but when push came to shove it was still not easy to find. I'm not sure the effect was worth the effort.

I can send you some pigeon poop if you want to go all out! There's plenty on my car!

I'd recommend clear coating it though!

I have seen people use silly putty instead of rubber cement. I've also seen people make a paste out of salt and water and use that. Leaves a nice broken edge.

Silly putty would work, but I'd have to buy an awful lot, I think.

I'm going to get some of that stuff for putting up posters, not sure what it is callled.

Please tell me you're not a Cancer.

Nothing at all, that's why he cannot be one. If he screws up by being a Cancer,I will get a SW tatoo on my forehead.

Nope. Not a Cancer. Well the zodiac sign anyway. I did almost marry a cancer once but I managed to get out of it.
