    I’ve been trying to get the whitewash down for weeks and it’s beginning to drive me mad. I don’t get the cool cells that form over time on your projects. It just dilutes into a cloudy form. I’ve tried acrylic paint and resin and I’ve even tried to mix in drops of alcohol to try to achieve these realistic waves but no dice. Have you encountered this same problem, is there something that I can do to fix it? Any help would be appreciated beyond measure!

      Did you get a chance to watch the video tutorial? I talk about this a bit, but I think it has to do with the pigments!

      Hi! I actually had the same issue and for me, I learned it was because the level of heat! When you torch it, instead of just heat gun, it will give those beautiful webs!
