Gilding Wax comes in four different colors ranging from gold to silver.
Most of the time I apply it using my pointer finger
but it can be applied with an artist brush.
Gilding wax is used primarily to add beautiful detail to a piece,
in combination with or instead of distressing or a fancy wax finish.
You still need to wax your piece to seal it, but Annie's
Clear Wax finish is all you need if you will be using this Gilding Wax!

So, the step by step process looks something like this:
1. Paint your piece whatever Chalk Paint® color you choose!
2. Let paint dry, apply Annie’s Clear Wax and/or Dark Wax.
3. Let waxes dry overnight and buff with a soft rag.
4. Lastly, apply the Gilding Wax with your finger to detailed or raised areas.
