The one where we answer the question

A couple posts back I posed the question asking what Miss Mustard Seed would do with this armoire. Well not even 1 day later the dear lady posted about her new FAVORITE paint.  French Chalk Paint by Annie Solan.

So I ordered some paint in a nice Old White sort  of color and some wax.  It should be here next week.. I am very excited and can't wait to see what I am able to do with it!

I understand the paint, but not the wax. I hope you can explain it as you do your magic on this beautiful piece of furniture. I'd love to learn!

Hey Sew Cal... the wax is use as a finish after the paint. Caulk paint is very flat a porus ( think of an old vintage flat finish) so it needs a protective layer.. the options abound but the way gives a very warm silky finish. I will be using 2 waxes, first a clear to seal then a bit of tinted wax to add depth to the detail. At least let's hope that is how it will go!
