DARK WAX ON WHITE PAINT - how to video for old world effect





Learning how to use dark wax can be tricky. Using it on white paint can be terrifying. I have done a short video showing how I apply dark wax to get an old world effect.

BE SPECIFIC
I hope this photo shows how the dark wax has been placed on
 the cabinet. It is not all muddy, it has been careful placed 
and worked into the finish.

This next photo shows the matching night stands.


NOW FOR THE VIDEO ...

CLEAR WAX FIRST
I always clear wax my chalk paint project before dark waxing.
Clear wax provides a layer or barrier to protect your paint
 color from the stain in the dark wax. Dark wax can be moved
 around easily on top of the clear wax, and as shown in the
 video a bit more clear wax can also be used to remove dark
 wax in areas you want to lighten up. 

The exception to this rule is when I apply dark wax to AS
 Graphite I usually do it without any clear wax to help darken
 the paint color. I used Annie Sloan waxes on this project.

HARDWARE
After all the waxing and polishing was finished I added all 
new hardware and even included some great clock knobs.
