How to Use Waxes & Varnishes

WAXES

Shake or stir well. Apply with Americana Decor Waxing Brush or a clean, lint-free cloth. Remove excess. Buff to desired sheen as product dries. For more control over the color intensity when using the darker waxes, apply over Americana Decor Clear Crème Wax. Cure for 7 days before heavy use. Clean up with soap and water.

VARNISHES

Shake well. Apply a thin, even coat with a brush. Allow to dry. Apply additional coats for added protection indoors or out. Clean up with soap and water.

Tips for Waxes & Varnishes

WAXES

Tint Clear Crème Wax with a lighter paint color to create a wash.

Protect the painted finish on fabric pieces by applying a coat of wax. The wax will not crack, unlike other brands.

Use the Clear Crème Wax under the darker wax colors to make it easier to control the intensity of the darker waxes. Visit the education page for detailed instructions.

VARNISHES

Always use a varnish for outdoor pieces. Simply brush 2-3 coats of desired varnish directly over dry Chalky Finish paint.

Always clean jar threads before replacing jar lid. Leaving varnish on jar threads will make it difficult to remove lids in the future.
