~ Gilding Wax Stenciled Dresser ~

Got a steal on this dresser from our neighbor...
loved the original paint...
but couldn't get Chalk Paint® on it quick enough!


So I broke out the Louis Blue and Old White...and away I went!


Once I had it painted it was time to wax.


I gave it one coat of Annie's Soft Clear Wax...


...and then I distressed the piece using #3 steel wool to my liking.
Allow the wax to dry overnight and buff with a lint free rag to a lustrous sheen.


I love the detail work on this dresser.


The dresser must be old because it had been painted white, green, and a blue.


I stenciled the two drawers with Gilding Wax in color King Gold.
To make a Gilding Wax glaze...take a small amount of Gilding Wax out of the pot
and thin with a few drops of mineral spirits.
Blue tape the stencil where you want it.  Take a stencil brush or a small
artist brush and apply the Gilding Wax glaze sparingly.
Gilding Wax dries very quickly.
No need to apply Clear Wax over the Gilding Wax because it is a wax.
