Blistered Paint

Pat Staff asked 4 years ago

I would like to know how to make my paint blister. I do old furniture distressing and I want my paint to bubble up. I would like it to bubble to achieve the look of the paint in this photo.

Hello
I was in the Portland area a few years ago in a furniture shop. They were doing a process that looked like what you are wanting to achieve. They had sanded different area's of the piece to look warn then were going over the spots with a heat gun. They called the process teak-ing.

PAINT IT WITH ''TITEBOND' GLUE. AFTER IT DRIES BRUSH OVER IT WITH LATEX PAINT AND WATCH IT CRACKLE! THEY HAVE INFO ON THEIR WEB SITE I THINK. I DID ALL MY KITCHEN CABINETS. SEAL IT WITH CLEAR SEALER AFTER YOUR DONE TO KEEP THE FLAKES FROM COMING OFF.
