Working with Dark Wax

Working with Dark Wax

Annie demonstrates how to bring depth of colour and texture to your paint work using her dark Chalk Paint® Wax.

  1. This is best achieved when Chalk Paint® is a little thick so don't add water to the paint. You may need to leave the paint pot open for a short time to make it thicken a little.

  2. Apply Chalk Paint®, moving the brush in different directions to create texture.

  3. Now it is painted and dry, tackle the waxing a section at a time. First apply Clear Chalk Paint® Wax allowing it to absorb into the paint so the surface seems 'dry' to the touch.

  4. Now apply Dark Chalk Paint® Wax rubbing every which way so the Dark Wax seeks out all the crevices and texture of the painted surface.

  5. Leave to absorb for a minute or so then wipe off the excess with a clean cloth.

  6. The Dark Wax should now be apparent filling the grooves and ruts in the paint work. To clean the paint, gently wipe with Clear Wax.
