Wood wax for colour and as a sealant
Wood wax can be used to create a stabilising surface on natural wood. It is available as a colourless wax, as an antique wax in dark brown and as coloured waxes in many shades of grey and white. By waxing, yellowed wood tones can be refreshed, natural wood can be "fired up" and wood surfaces can be coloured. All waxes except the colourless waxes contain natural chalk and pigments.
Wood wax instead of paint
Waxes are particularly suitable if, for example, you do not want to cover up the grain.
In contrast to paint, waxes are not opaque, but preserve the wood structure. And that is often desirable, especially with wooden ceilings. However, you must bear in mind that the original wood colour always shimmers through and thus also determines the colour shade. It is therefore not possible to determine the final colour shade exactly Beforehand.
The waxes are best applied as thinly as possible with a wax brush. If the desired colour intensity is not yet achieved, apply a second or even a third coat after drying.
Colourless wood wax
The colourless waxes offer you the possibility of additionally stabilising and finishing matt coats with wall emulsion or matt varnish.
Wood wax as patina wax
You always need patina wax in dark brown if you want to create vintage-style furniture. Here, the furniture is first painted matt in the desired colour. Then you set dark accents with the antique wax. The wax should be applied carefully and with feeling so that the painted colour is not completely changed. Finally, polish with a dry, soft cloth.
You also have the option of treating and finishing dark natural woods such as walnut or mahogany with antique wax. This treatment can be refreshed every now and then, just like a furniture polish
