The Canadian Waxes of Colorantic™

 

The Canadian Waxes of Colorantic™ are available in 5 colours: Natural Clear, Grey Storm, White Snow, Brown Antique and the new Black Coal. These waxes can be purchased in either a 4 oz or 8 oz. We use natural quality products such as clear beeswax and natural oils and add different pigments to create the colours.

 

Waxes are basically made as a furniture protection coat, following the Colorantic™ chalk based paint’s application. The tinted waxes enable you to give your furniture new life by giving them a unique look! For example, you can achieve a White Washed or Shabby-Chic look with the White Snow wax, an old rustic effect with the Antique brown wax and a grey washed barn style effect with the Grey Storm wax.

 

Tip:  Do not forget that is best to apply the natural wax before applying any darker wax. This will prevent the wax from blending in flat and instead allow you to achieve your desired look. It is recommended to brush off excess wax on a paper towel before brushing it onto the piece of furniture.

 

Wax is used as a last step, you can not paint over the wax once it has been applied. We recommend you test the wax or effect on a small corner of your project (preferably at the back where you wont see it) before applying it all over. This well help you decide beforehand what look you are going for and how to correctly apply it.

The dry time is from 1 to 7 days.

    Quick Question how long should it take for a wax coat to dry?

      Waxes takes between 1 to 7 days to cure. Use a cloth to press the wax in order to have it dry faster.

    Can I put the wax (antic brown) straight on bear wood (pine)?

      It’s best if you add the natural beeswax first, then the dark wax. C’est mieux si vous appliquez la cire naturelle d’abeille avant puis la cire foncée après.

    Does the wax act as a “sealer” after you’ve applied chalk paint? Or should we use top coat?

      Both are sealers, wax and top coat. Don’t add wax underneath varnish. But the opposite is possible.
