Remember that it’s best to apply the natural wax before applying the dark waxes. The wax takes up to seven days to dry. To speed up drying, you can sand/wipe the waxed surface..

The benefits of wax

– Protecting the surface

The main purpose of waxes is to protect your furniture after painting. Naturelle d’abeille leaves a soft, satin finish on the surface and is also “food grade” approved, so it can be used on butcher blocks, a cutting board or a wooden fruit bowl.

It is very important that wax is the last product applied to your furniture. If you apply paint, glaze or varnish over the wax, the product will not hold.

Once the paint is dry, all that’s left to do is apply the wax. In addition to protecting your furniture, it will give it more relief. If you use Colorantic’s natural beeswax, the paint will retain its color.

The darker wax will provide more contrast and allow you to add an old-fashioned look to your masterpiece. Don’t hesitate!

– Creating a false finish

Finally, waxes containing pigments allow you to give your furniture a shine while making it unique!

  • With Neige blanche wax, for example, you can achieve a “WhiteWashed” cloud effect and a “Shabby-Chic” style.
  • With Antique Brown wax, you’ll achieve a “time-worn” effect.
  • With Tempête grise wax, you can achieve a “barn wood” distressed effect.
