How To Use Dixie Dirt

Want to age decorative items or furniture? 
Well, put a little dirt on it…
Dixie Dirt, that is!
 
This tin ceiling tile had been painted white and lightly sanded. And that’s exactly how it looked…painted and sanded.
 Dixie Dirt from The Dixie Belle Paint Company will add more of a natural looking age effect. And, it’s easy peasy!
 
Start by adding clear wax…
 
Dip a paintbrush into the Dixie Dirt. Give it a tap to remove the excess dirt.
 
Paint the dirt onto the wax, concentrating in the recessed areas and grooves.
 
It will look a little heavy, or too dirty, at this point…
 
Use a rag to rub off some of the dirt until you achieve the desired look…
 
 
Perfectly aged…
and so easy!

 

 
What will you put some dirt on?

 

 
Pin It
