Annie Sloan Clear Wax is used to seal and protect the Chalk Paint as well as making the paint water resistant.
If you are purchasing a litre tin of paint we recommend a 500ml wax. If you are purchasing a mini 120ml tin of paint you could go for the 120ml clear wax unless you have other painting projects where you will need to seal with clear wax.
The wax comes in 4 different colours:
- Clear Wax - used to seal the Chalk Paint for a matt finish and also used before and after the coloured waxes
- White wax - helps to create a washed finished/look - always apply clear wax after the white.
- Dark wax - helps to create an aged look - always apply clear wax before & after the dark wax to seal & protect it.
- Black wax - give a rich modern finish/look - always apply clear wax before & after the dark wax to seal & protect it.
Please note when using dark or black wax ALWAYS CLEAR WAX your piece of furniture before you put on your dark / black wax, and then you can use the clear wax to seal and lift the coloured waxes.
ALWAYS WIPE EXCESS OFF USING A LINT FREE CLOTH
