All About Wax

Decor wax is amazing for adding highlights to any project and for making those little details pop! They are smooth and creamy and glide on with ease. Here are a handful of tips if you are new to using Decor Wax.

  • It is easy to apply Decor wax. You can use a brush, sponge, soft cloth, or your fingers.
  • A little goes a long way so start with a small amount. You can always add more. If you use too much you can wipe off the excess with a rag.
  • Decor wax should always be applied last on any furniture project. Wax is self-curing and permanent when dry and does not require a protective coat.
  • Decor wax can be applied over Decor transfers but transfers should not be applied over wax.
  • Decor wax is highly pigmented and really pop on a dark background, or try them on a light background for a more subtle effect.
  • Perfect for adding colour and finishing touches to mixed-media and home décor projects.
  • Works on most popular surfaces and elements giving the permanent, semi-gloss, water-resisting finish which doesn’t require sealers.

With so many different kinds of wax how do you choose the right one for your project?
