I hope you have been enjoying my video partnership with Sara from sincerely, sara d. as much as I have!! Today’s video is another EASY way to give a distressed look to a piece. The secret ingredient is: VASELINE. It’s amazing how well this technique works, check out our video to see the results…
How to Distress Paint with Vaseline
1. Use a brush to go over the edges with Vaseline.
2. Use your preferred method of painting. Spray painting works really well, because it is less likely to disturb the Vaseline.
3. Once the paint is dry, use an old cloth or sandpaper to rub off all the Vaseline.
Paul P says
As the white paint ages, does the paint flake or rub off in the places that were NOT originally wiped or scraped off?
Paul, as long as you rub all of the Vaseline off, the paint should stick to the piece.
Susan Hudson says
Does the Vaseline method work with chalk paint?
Can you use this method with stain?
Lindsay, I’m not sure? I think it might rub off as you are staining the piece.
Great tips! Thanks so much for posting!

can you use this method over a painted piece and use another color over the first color?
Yes! That will add more dimension to the piece.
