One of the most underestimated components of DIY refinishing and refurbishing is waxing. While the paint, plaster, sanding, and sealing are all important, waxing is a finishing technique you can use to protect your work and add a unique layer of color and texture. It also can highlight the depth and design of your furniture, wall decor, wood features, and more! Best of all, it gives an Old World look to any piece -- a look that cannot be replicated in the same way with other techniques.
The right tools can make all the difference in whether your project is successful. When cerusing, use two paint brushes – one for applying the glaze and one for offloading. Watch Amy demonstrate proper painting techniques as she walks you through creating this elegant, timeless finish step-by-step! Remember, Glazed Over and our One Step Paint do not have to be sealed! So once you complete your finish, you are done!
