A Day at the Beach

By Brooke Sobol, Artist at Heartland Vintage Market in Cameron Park, CA.

I used layers of colors and heavy distressing to achieve this casual, beachy look. 

A stained top with heavy sanding complements the cool sea colors. 

Layer complementary colors over each other, adding a touch of clear wax between each coat. The wax acts as a resistor. When you distress, you'll reveal layers of fabulous color.
