Newly painted vintage concrete garland...

Here I go again...
I bought an old outdoor concrete garland and painted and distressed it.
This is so much fun. I used regular artist's acrylic paint. then I sanded the piece and finally, watered down some white paint with flat acrylic varnish and water. That's it.
You can , first, wet the  piece, then  the paint will bleed and soften,
like a  fresco.
I painted on dry  concrete,
 then sanded the whole garland.
Too bright for my taste.
Two coats of whitewash, using a brush and sponge to absorb  excess.
