Use White Chalk Paint® Wax to soften and lighten Chalk Paint®colors. It can also be applied directly onto unvarnished wood to create a limed look. Chalk Paint Wax® will seal and protect furniture and walls painted with Chalk Paint® decorative paint. Apply a thin coat of white wax, removing any excess with a clean cloth. Less is more, so there’s no need to apply wax too thickly. If you do over-apply the wax, you can wipe back any excess with clear Chalk Paint® Wax, making sure every part of your piece has been waxed at least once.
