How to use Best Dang Wax
Firstly, make sure that your painted surface has been dried for more than 24 hours.
You can apply the wax either using:
Dip your applicator to draw a small amount of wax and apply a thin layer to the surface in a circular motion. This ensures the wax reaches all areas of the paint, especially important on a textured finish.
Wait a minimum of 15 minutes once all the wax is applied and buff the surface back with a clean cloth. Or longer if you want a more dramatic wax look but no more than 24 hours.
Buff the product in a circular motion.
This will give your wax a soft sheen.
Using Wax For Faux Finishes
Create a subtle soft feathery shading by applying a small amount of wax in a contrasting colour to your paint using a Dixie Belle's 2inch Chip Brush. With a light hand 'feather' the brush around the edges of your furniture this creates a subtle shaded effect.
Dixie Belles Best Dang Wax is great for creating grungy layered effects. Because the wax can be painted over this offers a unique opportunity to layer up like never before.
