…dark wax OPTIONAL

Did you know that using dark wax is optional?


I get so many questions about how to apply dark wax. Many of us end up with a muddy mess if not applied correctly. I played with it for years. Here are some earlier pieces when I used it for great, surface coverage. It lends itself to a very aged look when used this way.



When I started doing refinishing work, I tempered my use and used it very minimally for edging and detail work. Clients tend to shy away from anything too distressed.


I now only use it when requested by clients for their pieces. I do use it for my own pieces that I buy & sell, however. I think it’s a great resource when used correctly.
