Nicely produced video, Brian, would gladly let you do mine.
I dislike critiquing others ideas and artistic abilities, every one's taste and methods for achieving these types of finishes and others are in my opinion, up to the individual, critiquing is not necessary.
Everyone and anyone here who does distressed or faux finishing has developed there own methods and application parameters to what ever success they wanted to or abilities have allowed them to. Who can judge individual art or techniques. It's really a matter of what one likes and the amount of time one wants to put into any look wanted, right?
The only time that differs is if your in business doing so and you need to come up with ways to do such as you have done in a way that will be both profitable and and of course reasonably priced where people would pay you to do it.
In this case, that's not a concern. With me, it was at the heart of my work. I "had" to find ways that took less steps if i wanted work doing such. If i would give any advice it would be just that, find or change your methods so they can be done in less steps and time.
If you would like suggestions, i would be more than happy to give you input, unfortunately i don't do YouTube, but you can look at "my photos" if you like to get an idea of what i did as to faux work on a professional level, ok?
