Morning all, Mark here and as it's the first of the month It's time for a new tutorial post.
I have been working with the  Decoart Antiquing Creams for todays post.
They are a new product and they form part of the Decoart Media Line.
They are a cream designed to give an aged or shaded look to pieces with texture.

I started with some Tando-Creative media boards and ran them through a couple of embossing folders and painting them with Decoart Media Fluids and Misters.

When using the antiquing creams, a little goes a long way. I just squeeze a couple of drops on to the surface and rub it in with my finger, you can use a brush.

Let the cream dry.
The antiquing cream is designed to be reactive with water. This allows you to go in with a wet wipe or a damp non fluffy cloth and wipe away the cream gently from the raised area. Work on a small area at a time, the cream will lossen up and start to move, just wipe with a piece of kitchen towel to remove the cream, repeat this till you like the results.
Its also a very forgiving medium, if you do not like what you have done, you can wipe it all away and start over, or if you have wiped a bit to hard you can just add more cream.

This is with White only.

This is a mix of White and Patina.
As the cream is reactive when wet you need to spray seal the surface before working on the next colour.

This is Black only.

The Antiquing Cream is also great for aging your embellishments

Just paint, let dry and rub the cream away with a kitchen towel.
A piece of Acetate was cut to the shape of the tag and the images were stamped with Black Stazon ink.

For this Background I stamped With Blue archival ink over a Base coat of White acrylic paint.A coat of Gloss varnish was added and anvery thin coat of Decoarts crackle glaze was added in places and left to dry.
Black antiquing cream was added as above and wiped away. It's helped tone down the starkness of the blue and white and the fine cracks have been bought out giving a grubby Chinese porcelain look.

Thanks for stopping by. Stop back tomorrow for soe new inspiration from our DT.

Great tutorial, thank you!! The antiquing creams are really wonderful. I'm astonished by the result on the last piece, who would expect such strong colours to become so "soft" and looking old. I'm glad I have added these creams to my shop!
