Confused about the correct process/order to dying, painting, antiquing, sealing…

Recommended Posts

Everyone seems to do it differently, so I’m just comparing…

What order do you do those in, and what products do you like to use?? (BONUS POINTS for links!)

I’m wanting to dye some areas of the work, paint some areas of the work, and antique on top of the tooling (some areas of tooling are painted, some aren’t painted- just dyed).

Tool first, I got that. But then what?

And do I need to use sealer in between steps? If so, any tips on timeframes for drying are much appreciated!
