step -3 ; paint on the [ DISTRESS CRACKLE PAINT ] ,THEY SAY THE THICKER IT IS PUT ON THE MORE DISTRESSED IT GETS ,

I use a blow dryer to speed up the drying time ,

MIKE , you are welcome .I hope it helps , b.t.w. all the paints are done with a brush , that back section only took about 30 minutes to do but with pics and posting it took longer to get it on here,
