No this isn’t a character in 50 Shades of Gray or a new type of drink. I came up with the name when I looked up the word “weathered” in a thesaurus. The word “crush” is a synonym for “weathered”, hence Gray Crush was born. It is a painting technique I use to “weather” my wood projects. I modified it a little when I saw it here on the AKA Design Blog. I love her blog, you should definitely check it out. I don’t have a ratio for the paint and water and I alter it depending on how much gray I want it to achieve.
