These matte creams are ideal for antiquing on non-porous surfaces. They are opaque, and non-permanent for unlimited working time prior to sealing. Once the cream is dry, it can be easily wiped from undesired areas with a damp cloth. The creams can also be buffed to a high sheen, easily sanded and distressed once dry. They can be sealed with varnishes for a permanent finish. They are fast drying, water-based, non-toxic and cleanup quickly and easily.
