Dear All,

I have a sentence saying: "But over time Maxine taught Cady how to do some basic repairs on antiques and how to make new things look old with crackle paint and sandpaper, using the contents of the vacuum bag to rub into crevices and voids."

I got confused a little bit. Do I understand right: contents of vacuum bag = dust..etc? Does somebody really use such trick, in renovation of some old things by filling cracks with pressed dust? I've found some advice about filling cracks with epoxy and instant coffee, so may be its true...

Or this phrase has absolute different meaning?

Thank you!

No, that is it.

It is not about repair, it is about making it look old by faking it having a few hundred years of dust accumulated in its crevices.
