How to Gild Furniture with Gilding Wax

Annie Sloan demonstrates how to gild painted furniture using a combination of Gilding Wax colours for an authentic finish.

  1. Paint your piece of furniture moving your brush in every direction for a textured finish. Here Annie has used Aubusson Blue.
  2. Once the paint has dried, seal with a coat of clear Chalk Paint® Wax.
  3. Apply Annie Sloan Gilding Wax in two colours (e.g. Bright Gold and Warm Gold) building up the wax in layers for an authentic, uneven look.
