Who’s Afraid of the Big Dark Wax? (The KEY to Antiquing Chalk Paint!)Posted by Michelle on Sep 20, 2011 in Chalk Paint Furniture, Portfolio | 1 comment
I was! I was afraid to use the dark wax on my pristinely chalk painted furniture! But, now that I’ve used it a few times and have seen what it can do to make a chalk paint project come to life – I love it! One of my favorite steps in repurposing a piece of furniture.
So you too can appreciate the magic, I will share some before dark wax and after dark waxing photos…
Painted Cherub Angel Turned Antique Beauty!
Here he is after Old White paint:
And after applying the dark wax! What a transformation!
Antique Frame Brought to Life!
Here is the ornate frame corner before waxing:
And, in all its dark waxed glory!
Old Gold Picture Frame Repurposed
Here is the frame after 2 coats of Primer Red chalk paint and clear wax:
And now, after applying the most dark wax I’ve ever used on a project!
Wow! So much richer and just the shade of red I needed on this frame!
So you can see what it is like to apply dark wax to chalk paint, we made a video of dark waxing painted pumpkins for Fall!
Do you have a chalk paint success story or a victory using dark wax you want to share? Do you have a chalk painting question or want tips on using dark wax? Please add a comment below about your project or question and I’ll contact you!
