Using Chalk to Age a Rustic Dollhouse Table

Lesley Shepherd

When the paint from step 8 has dried, coat the miniature table top with a semi gloss acrylic to make the surface easier to keep dust free. This is especially important if the table will be part of a dolls house display!

When the finish is at the tacky stage, use a small chalk applicator to dab small irregular patches of bright green and beige chalk (from a scrapbook supplier) on the table to mimic lichen. Leave the table top to dry.
