How To Antique Furniture | Dark Wax Tutorial


Hey there, it’s Rosanne here from Country Chic Paint In this video I’m going to show you how to
use dark wax to antique your furniture, so stay tuned. In this video we’re going to be using
the following supplies: We’re using Country Chic Paint’s antiquing wax
as well as a large wax brush and a lint free cloth. We’ve been working on
this little chair in some other videos so if you want to learn
about the entire process make sure to check out our YouTube channel
for our other videos With our antiquing wax it is
not necessary to apply natural wax first. You can if you want to but for this project I’m just going to apply it straight on the chair. I like using the
Country Chic Paint wax brushes to apply to wax because it’s
easier to get the paint in all the nooks and crannies of your piece, but you could also use a lint free rag if you
prefer So you’ll simply swirl it into your jar and then you’ll just brush it onto your piece I find it easiest to apply circular motions to spread out the wax Our wax doesn’t contain solvents so it’s
very environmentally friendly It does mean that the consistency is
a bit harder than you might be used to so you’ll need to keep in mind that the
wax can take up to three to four weeks to fully cure Since the wax is all natural and doesn’t contain chemical dryers it will stay
workable for a long time so you can also wait with buffing if you
need to run out halfway through for example to store your wax brushes I recommend
putting them in a ziploc bag or you can also use our brush soap to clean them after use after applying the wax you can buff it right away with a lint free cloth. So
normally I would not use antiquing wax on a seating surface of a chair because even though after it cures it feels dry, it can still give up some of the pigment and the last thing you want is to stain your clothing
with wax There’s another little tip I want to
show you and that is how you can use our natural
wax to manipulate your antiquing wax You just simply put some on a cloth and
you can use it as an eraser so you’re going to remove the antiquing wax with the natural wax so if you’ve applied too much then you can
always take some away Besides antiquing wax and
natural wax we also carry white wax, pearl wax, and gold wax If you want to learn more about

    As for what I would do with the wax? I have several pieces I am working on right now. Most likely it would be a mirror , a new fun antique dressing table or antique table I plan to paint. I am starting up a new small consignment business this summer painting pieces for a thrift store. If it does well I plan to build hold classes, and begin to carry your products. I would love to try the gold wax. Thank you for your professional videos, and wonderful tips.
