How to apply wax on furniture?
First of all, how to apply wax on a piece of furniture? What are our tips? See all the details in this tutorial produced in collaboration with Victoriaville furniture artisans, R-Usé and Colorantic.
First choose from our 6 wax colors!
In fact, our waxes are offered in 4 and 8 oz formats. Remember that it is best to apply natural wax before dark waxes. The waxes dry for 1 to 7 days. Sand/wipe the waxed surface to aid in drying time.

Colorantic™ Canadian Waxes
Our waxes are made in 5 shades; Bee Natural (light), Gray Storm, Snow White, Antique Brown, and Charcoal Black. They are available in 2oz, 4oz and 8oz sizes. They are made from quality natural products such as beeswax and natural oils.
The uses of wax
Protect the surface
In addition, the primary purpose of waxes is to protect your furniture following the application of paint. Natural beeswax leaves a satin finish on the surface, unlike the matte finish of glaze or varnish. The wax is also food-grade approved so can be used on butcher blocks or cutting boards.
It is very important that the wax is the last product applied to your furniture. If you apply glaze or paint over it, the product will not hold.
Create a faux finish
Finally, waxes containing pigments allow you to give your furniture a shine by making it unique! For example, you will have a cloud effect (White Washed) & Shabby-Chic style with the White Snow wax, a weathered effect with the Antique Brown wax and a washed-out barn wood effect with the Gray Storm wax.
