Distressed Finish Using Vaseline

After reading several methods for painting with a distressed finish I decided to try a few pieces using the Vaseline technique.  Here is how I painted my pieces.

1.) Paint your base color.  Let dry.
2.) Lightly put vaseline where you want the paint to be distressed.
3.) Paint your top color-painting right over the vaseline areas.  Let dry completely.
4.) Lightly sand the areas where the vaseline is.

Here is what my finished products looked like...
