This liquid wax goes on like a dream. Just brush it on like you do your paint, let it dry (I normally wait 12-24 hours) and then buff it with a cloth. This wax gets hard enough to use a single coat on furniture, but I put 2 or 3 coats on surfaces that are going to be heavily used like the top of a buffet, just for good measure. I used a soft wax previously and did not get this kind of result. This has a nice smooth but hard finish. I can’t speak to how long it will hold up but it’s been about a month on the hutch I did and it’s great so far. I use this for signs also to protect them from scratching. I have used it over chalk paint, homemade chalk paint and regular latex paint.

Wax on, wax off

This along with the Folk Art chalk paint is awesome. I painted an old dresser and used two coats of paint. Then I applied the wax. It’s recommended on the bottle you wait a day before buffing it. I was impatient and started sanding when I thought it had dried – that’s a no no. Some of it peeled and gummied up my sandpaper rendering it useless. Luckily, my mistake didn’t lift off the underlying paint though. From then on, I waited until it was ready the next day and have had no issues since.

Read instructions!

I love this wax, I had never waxed anything before so like anyone I turned to Google. It sounds obvious but read the instructions for this particular wax, the first few times I used it i wasn’t getting the shiny results I wanted! I was doing what YouTube said, put the wax on a small area, work it in, the buff it. So I did that, but for this particular wax you leave it on overnight then buff it, it makes a huge difference! My furniture wasn’t soaking the wax in because I wasn’t leaving it online long enough, it’s made a huge difference, now it’s got a slight sheen and it’s soft!

I bought this home décor wax to seal the folkart chalk paint I used on a dresser. So far the wax has worked very well and has sealed it really good. The wax was easy to apply and dried clear and did not effect my paint job. I would recommend this wax to others. I also used this wax on a small dresser and still have half the bottle left so a little goes a long way

Perfect for that old distressed look

My wife made her own chalk paint and then used this wax along with the dark wax to create a distressed look on two pieces I built. They turned out great.

I like the other Home Decor products and I am sure …

I’m still learning how to use wax on the chalk paint. I prefer a clear acrylic coating. Will try again. I like the other Home Decor products and I am sure as wax goes, it is a good product. I am new to chalk painting and therefore my review needs to be taken with a grain of salt. I also believe the right brush makes a difference. I will invest in a better brush next time. The bristles came off easily with the wax and I spent too much time picking out bristles.

Okay but may be doing it wrong

I’m not sure if I’m doing something wrong but I cannot buff this wax. I’m new at this and used it over chalk paint. I followed all directions but when I try to buff nothing happens so I just add a coat after chalk painting and leave as is as a protectant/sealant. It still looks okay and seems to be holding up well.

It works great thank you
