  3. Without waiting, I painted over the glue with a blend of white and golden brown paint.  (I didn't have off-white, but I like the streaky effect of the imcomplete mixing of the paints.  It adds to the aged look.)
     
  4. You can see the surface is showing cracks already, so you need to apply the second layer of paint right away.
