I have been asked many times, how to use dark wax, which is not really something that is easy to explain. It is best shown. I’ve also seen some furniture painters out there attempt to use dark wax and end up making it look splotchy and dirty. I’ve definitely had my share of mess-ups, which I was able to fix, but through the process, I’ve learned the fastest, easiest way to use dark wax. So I’m imparting some of my knowledge via video tutorial today!
This is a continuation of the end table makeover I revealed this past Monday, but also used to show how to dry brush in the video tutorial I did last week! Dark wax is best used to deepen bright colors (like red, blue, and green), to add warmth and an authentic aged look to lighter colors, and it also accentuates details by settling into crevices, adding contrast!
Here it is! Let me know if there are parts I didn’t address or you still have questions about!
