Using Sweet Pickins Dark Wax

Sweet Pickins Dark Wax

Our Sweet Pickins Waxes are all natural and contain no solvents. Of course chemical free is always a good thing, and solvent free means the products have a long open time, allowing you to spread the wax and get a great even look. It's just like buttering bread really!
So here's some tips for you specific to applying black wax.

– Always clear wax 1st.

– Waxing is your final topcoat – no need to apply anything over it.

 – If you like the look of the dark wax and want to apply it over an existing finish, you can.  You can apply it over any finish, but no need to apply any other finish over wax.

– Wax hardens and cures over time making for a super durable finish.

– Some people like to just use the dark wax to highlight some of the details and not use it all over.  Just make sure and use a clean rag to blend it in.  You can also apply some clear wax over the dark to help with the blending.  Some even like to dip their brush in clear 1st then in the dark and then use it to blend it into certain areas.  This will help control the intensity of the dark wax and make blending easier.

The thing to remember is if you don't like the look you can simply buff it out with a clear wax, all happy!

Have fun and play around!
