To age and give texture to your paintwork apply Annie Sloan Dark Wax after you apply Clear Soft Wax. Wipe off any excess, then use the Clear Soft Wax to take more off if you need to. Leave the dark wax for chalk paint in the recesses to create a great antique look.
You can colour Dark Soft Wax to make it less brown by using a little Chalk Paint in the wax. Use Old White to make white wax or a bit of Aubusson to make the wax almost black.
Apply with a brush or rag.
