Give Father Time the elbow with a paint that gives an instant aged effect

Upcyclists keen to give a piece of furniture a worn-in look can find the exact style they’re looking for – in a tin of paint.

Frenchic, which offers a wide range of chalk and mineral paint, have launched Frenchic Easy Crackle, which can be applied between two contrasting colours of furniture paint. The first gives the colour of the crackle and the second the overall colour of the project, giving an aged appearance. 

Earlier this month, Frenchic also launched an Al Fresco range for outdoor furniture.
