Related FAQs

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.
What types of surfaces can I use FolkArt Home Decor Chalk paint on?
FolkArt Home Decor Chalk can be applied to many different types of surfaces such as finished and unfinished wood, terracotta, metal/tin, canvas, paper mache and plaster.
It can be applied to ceramic and glass surfaces; however, the paint is not dishwasher safe. Fabric surfaces can also be painted using FolkArt Home Decor Chalk, but the surface is not machine-washable. When decorating glass, ceramic and fabric surfaces, your project should be used as a decorative accessory only to be lightly cleaned using a damp cloth when needed.
Is it difficult to achieve the distressed look?
FolkArt Home Decor Chalk sands easily without “gumming up” the sandpaper. When sanding, you will notice a fine powder which is easily brushed or wiped away.
When satisfied with the distressed look, wipe project surface with a damp paper towel or tack cloth to remove excess sanding dust.
What is FolkArt Home Decor Wax?
FolkArt Home Decor Wax is a brushable, waterbase, non-toxic, paraffin-infused wax finish used to seal and protect painted surfaces. Allow paint to fully dry 24 hours before applying wax. Clean brushes while wet with soap and water.
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 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 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.
My FolkArt Antiquing Wax is applied too heavy in one area, can I remove it?
While still working on your project before the wax has dried, you can remove areas of dark Antiquing Wax. Simply wet the area with Clear Wax and continue to wipe away the undesired excess.
When will my FolkArt Home Decor waxed surface be cured?
FolkArt Home Decor waxed surfaces will be fully cured in 7 days. Until then, keep waxed surfaces free of moisture and heavy use to allow enough time for the wax to fully cure.
How shall I clean my brush after applying FolkArt Home Decor Wax?
Clean up is easy with soap and warm water. Work the brush bristles into soap lather then rinse well.
