About This Product

Achieving a vintage, time-worn look is simple if you start with the right paint. With Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint and Deep Brown Creme Wax, 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. Simply paint first, and once the paint has completely dried, apply a coat of Creme Wax. The wax will fuse with the Chalky paint, making it very strong. Be sure to reapply regularly. For a glossy sheen, buff the wax after applying. For a matte finish, simply rub it in. Waxes are applied easily with a brush or a soft, clean rag. By using a wax instead of a varnish, you have more control over how the finished piece will look. Dark waxes can be used on top of Clear waxes to add an authentic antique look.

Highlights

  • Water-based, low odor
  • For a protected matte finish, just rub on without buffing; buffing will create a glossier sheen; no need to re-apply wax - initial coat provides long lasting durability
  • 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
  • For a protected matte finish, just rub on without buffing; buffing will create a glossier sheen, no need to re-apply wax - initial coat provides long lasting durability
  • 100% water-based and non-toxic
  • Soap and water clean up while wet
  • Online price includes paint care fee in the following states: CA, CO, CT, MN, OR, RI, VT

        Q:Can this be used to keep a painted drawer from sticking?
        by|May 19, 2021
        2 Answers
        Answer This Question

        A:  Yes, it should assist with the sticking. We would recommend that you let it dry completely - 24-48 hrs - and then buff it with a soft cotton cloth to assist with smooth ingress and egress of the drawer. -DecoArt Paint Guru

          A:  It certainly should help and would be a cheap first step before resorting to sanding.

          Q:Can the clear wax be tinted turquoise??
          by|Jul 25, 2020
          1 Answer
          Answer This Question

          A:  You can tint the creme wax with no more than 20% of a color, however the color will not be as vibrant as the actual color when mixed with the creme, it will have more of a pastel look.

            I applied it with rags instead of a brush. I started to use a circular motion as recommended, and then changed it to straight lines, due to the chalk paint being a dark color and the wax was very visible. When it dried, it was acceptable. It sealed the chalk paint well and I'm happy with the results on my first filing cabinet re-do. The paint and wax containers were just the right size.

              takes chalk paint off
              I have used this on a tv tray and a lamp i painted wirh chalk paint! On borh itema i noticed it was removing the chalk paint! The TV tray I started noticing that my brush was pink which was the color of the chalk paint I used and the lamp I redid I started noticing on the edges it was taking the paint off! I let both pieces dry for a good 12 to 14 hours before I used to the wax Cream which maybe I was supposed to let it dry longer but I did a curbside pick up with Home Depot and they put my order Sticker on the container so I couldn’t even read the directions! I did uae a wax bruah!

                When I first started chalk painting a few years back, I was a full-on DIY-er, making the paint by mixing calcium carbonate and latex paint. When I found the Americana line, I stopped the DIY-ing, because it is that good, imo. What I like about the creme wax is that it is very easy to work with and dries pretty fast. I use a round waxing brush most of the time, although you can use a rag, which works well when you're working with small rounded surfaces. You can also tint the creme wax with other chalk paint colors, or to tone down the dark wax, which is fun, and something you can't do with paste waxes (that also speeds up the process by eliminating an extra coat of paint). My latest work was a pair of lamps that I painted in the Carbon color, then waxed with the clear creme wax, followed by a mixture of dark wax, the Romance (red) chalk paint, and a bit of the Carbon color. See the photos for the end result, which gave the pieces the look of oiled metal, just what I was looking for.

                Awesome product!
                The fact that you can change a piece of furniture in a day to look this good is amazing. We have updated our home with so many pieces we already had and the cost was so little. What a product!

                So love this product!!!
                I used this product along with the chalk paint. First time using them and it created that shabby chic look that I wanted. Found an abandoned table on the side of the street, brought it home and worked magic with these products. I definitely recommend!
