Product Overview

Achieving a vintage, time-worn look is simple if you start with the right paint.  With Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint, creating beautiful home decor and furniture pieces does not require skills or hours of training.  Make store-bought pieces or flea market finds look like they came from a European estate sale or a French countryside cottage by using Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint.

  • Water-based, low odor

  • Apply sparingly, do not over wax, too much wax will leave a finished surface feeling tacky, rub off excess wax
  • Waxes clean easily off brushes with soap and water, finished pieces can also be cleaned gently with a damp rag
  • Final packaging may vary
  • Online Price includes Paint Care fee in the following states: CA, CO, CT, MN, OR, RI, VT

Answer: 
Yes. Chalk paint needs to be "sealed" so it stays on the piece you painted. If not sealed, waxed, it can rub off. Best sealer is a chalk paint wax. Apply it with a rag, rubbing lightly over the surface. Let it dry for 24 hours before doing a second wax coat....helps the finish last longer and protects the surface if it is going to be in a heavy use area such as a table or chairs.

You can also go over the final piece after waxing with a coat of polyurethane if the table might get wet.

I only did a section of my piece that I am working on to see the color, which is now where near what was indicated on the container or any sites, so I have decided to go with a different color. I would like to know how long I should wait before I can paint over this section. I did a light first coat of wax and it has been dry for 2 days. Other brands say a couple of weeks though.

Answer: 
Chalk paint wax is usually fully cured within 30 days....very much like polyurethane. You can apply a second coat after 24 hours if it is going to be used daily such as a table or chair.
Give it time to cure and it will look great for years.

This wax is turning my white yellowish. How can I avoid this or fix this? I'm using sparingly.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by easy peasy wax easy to used much easier that solid wax and does a great job August 3, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible!!! Worst ever!!! I chalk paint, distress and wax pieces of vintage furniture for a living. I chalk painted and distressed a very ornate book shelf. It looked great! Then, instead of using my regular wax product, I decided to try the Home Depot Valspar brand of wax for "chalky finish" paint. It was the consistency of runny pudding so it went on easy. When I wiped it off, it was shiny like shellac!! I tried to dull it with steel wool---nothing! I tried TSP again and again.....now it is splotchy shiny. I have spent hours and hours needlessly on this piece. If you want a shiny, mirror like finish that is bullet proof, this is the product for you. This is NOT the finish nor the look that was advertised. I'm mad. June 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great! Product was high quality and finished my project very nicely! June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic Chalk Paint Wax Nice coverage, smooth finish, soft color. Excellent April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best purchase ever:) I really love this paint. Very easy to use and very economic. So 100% recommended.. April 13, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not Really "Wax" I have refinished a ton of furniture for customers and for my own home and this product is just OK. Firstly it is important to understand that it is not at all a wax. It is more similar to a matte acrylic glaze. The negatives are it is tacky and runny while applying, difficult to apply evenly to a larger surface, seems to be less durable than a real wax finish, and really leaves a raw, unfinished, unprofessional look. Also it will yellow if applied too thickly or if it accumulates in corners. The positives are it is not smelly and toxic, and it can brush on and buff up nicely on smaller sized pieces like picture frames or mirrors. Also cool is that if you really like the raw, chalky look, and get frustrated by the rich sheen that real waxes provide, this does actually give that chalky finish and does not deepen the color of the paint at all. For my purposes (resale and painting for clients) I am more comfortable with other products. November 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent soft wax A little went a long way. looks professional. Nice soft sheen July 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use wax Easy to spread, easy to buff in; protects my furniture and keeps it durable. I've used it over stencils I apply on top of my chalk painted furniture too. November 3, 2015
