What is the best technique to use when applying FolkArt Home Decor Antiquing Wax?
For easiest application of FolkArt Home Décor Antiquing Wax, it is recommended to first apply FolkArt Home Decor Clear Wax, let dry and buff. Having the layer of Clear Wax on the project surface between the painted finish and the Antiquing Wax will allow you more flexibility of moving the Antiquing Wax around. Then apply FolkArt Home Decor Antiquing Wax on top of the clear wax layer.
While antiquing wax is still wet, quickly wipe excess wax off of surface, leaving a darker color in intricate details, corners, and worn areas. Let dry overnight, then buff to desired sheen with a clean cloth. Keep waxed surfaces free of moisture and heavy use for 7 days. Clean up while wet with soap and water. For indoor use only.
Why do I need to buff the wax?
After applying the Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor Wax, it should be buffed to polish and seal the surface. The more you buff the more you will raise the sheen of your finished project.
What should I use to buff the FolkArt Home Decor wax?
When buffing, it is best to use a soft, lint-free cloth.
Fold the cloth into a small section which can be easily held in one hand. If working on a large piece of furniture, you will need to open the buffing cloth and refold it to a clean spot several times.
How long does it take FolkArt Home Decor Wax to dry?
Allow approximately 24 hours drying time once the wax has been applied to your project. After one day your waxed surface is ready to be buffed.
What is the best application technique to be used when applying FolkArt Home Decor Wax?
Application is simple using a soft bristled brush or a soft, lint-free cloth. The FolkArt Home Decor Wax Brush was specifically designed to be flexible and work wax into the porous, ultra matte paint.
Load the brush with wax, dabbing off any excess. Then apply a thin layer over the project surface in a smooth even application, being careful not to apply too much wax. Allow to dry for approximately 24 hours, then buff to desired sheen using a soft, lint-free cloth. The longer you buff, the higher the sheen.
How many types of FolkArt Home Decor Wax are there?
There are three different types of FolkArt Home Decor Wax: Clear Wax, White Wax and Antiquing Wax. All waxes provide a protective velvety smooth finish for your projects.
When properly applied, Clear Wax will protect your surface without adding color. White Wax gives your project a beautiful white washed or faded finish. Antiquing Wax adds a vintage or antiqued, time-worn look with a warm, chocolate brown, color. FolkArt Home Decor Chalk can be added to the waxes to create your own custom-colored waxes.
