Annie Sloan Dark Wax or Clear Wax: What to do?!
When I left the paint store yesterday I was actually kicking myself for not purchasing the dark wax. Then I was working on the dining table today and noticed the patina has nice dark edges and lines to it!
You always need clear wax and let it dry for the full 24 hours *be patient*. Then to add age to your piece using dark wax all over or in selected areas will help you create that aged effect. My piece already has that aged effect. I can put another light coat of Arles paint and then put on a clear coat of wax tomorrow! I cannot wait to see how this turns out!
CHALK PAINT TIP: Work with your piece. Do not let your piece work with you!
