    Question 1 year ago

    I have an 10x20 outdoor building that I'm turning into a old looking general store. I built a tin covered porch the full length of the building and try to paint the building to look distressed. It has the lap siding on it and looking for a way to distressed. I was told they make a paint that would crack the paint but I've only found it in like quart sized. Does anyone have a solution to my problem. I would be very grateful for any help I could get
    Thanks, and God bless
