What is the best application technique to be used when applying Waverly Inspirations Wax?
Apply Waverly Inspirations Wax using the Wax Brush to work the medium into matte chalk finish paint. Load the brush with small amount of wax, removing any excess. Apply a thin coat of wax using a downward, circular motion.
This motion works wax into the surface, allowing it to absorb into and fully seal the painted surface. Make sure to work the wax down into all crevices and details. Allow wax to dry for approximately 24 hours, then buff to desired sheen using a soft, lint-free cloth. The more you buff, the glossier the sheen.
What is the best technique to use when applying Waverly Inspirations Antique Wax?
For best results, it is recommended to first apply Waverly Inspirations Clear Wax, let dry and buff. The Clear Wax on the project surface makes it easier to move the Antique Wax around and achieve your desired finish. Then apply Waverly Inspirations Antique Wax on top of the Clear Wax layer. While the Antique Wax is still wet, quickly wipe excess wax off of surface, leaving the dark brown color in the surface recesses.
Wait 24 hours and buff project to desired sheen. Keep waxed surfaces free of moisture and heavy use for 7 days. For additional protection on heavily used surfaces, apply Clear Wax every 6 to 12 months, or as needed. Clean up while wet with soap and water. For indoor use only. The White Wax can be applied the same way as the Antiquing Wax, leaving white color in the recessed areas.
What if my Waverly Inspirations Antique or White Wax is applied too heavy in one area, can I remove it?
Yes, you can remove wax before it dries. Simply wet the area with Clear Wax and continue to wipe away the undesired excess.
Will I ever need to reapply Waverly Inspirations Wax?
On heavily used surfaces, it's recommended to reapply a fresh coat of clear wax once every 6 months to a year. It is not necessary to reapply to decorative or lightly used items.
