The wax can take anywhere from 7 days to a month to dry and harden thoroughly, depending on how much you applied.

Waxed furniture should be cleaned with a dry cloth.

    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.

    Is it better to apply with the wax brush or a cloth?

    • Sarina Bernard

      It’s better to use the wax brush. The cloth will absorb the wax. There is less loss with à brush. The other advantage with the brush is that it’s easier to create an antique look when you use a coloured wax. We recommend a different brush for each wax colour.

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

    Reply
    • Colorantic

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

    I’m working on the frame of a mirror and have one coat each of clear and dark brown creme wax. I want to add black for more depth. Can I use your black wax for this? Should I put a coat of clear on first?

    Reply
    • Sarina Bernard

      You can add the black wax directly on the mirror. You don’t need to put another coat of clear.
