Sorry for the corny title, I couldn’t resist. Not many people know that along with paint, we also sell a wonderful cream wax, called “Schrack’s Cream Wax.”
It is a soft wax that can be mixed with the paint or used straight out of the can for a Wax~Dry~Buff patina! Really nice stuff and half the price of competitive quality wax.
Schrack’s Cream Wax can also be mixed with any of our Old Village Paints to create all kinds of primitive to fine furniture finishes and patinas! It can also be mixed with metallic powders.
The photo below shows a wax that has been tinted with a darker color, and then added to a white surface.
Here’s an example of what it might look like if you used wax, mixed with a metallic paint/powder to add some unique character.
Remember that while there are do’s and dont’s to painting, there is also a lot of discovery and fun in experimenting, and wax is one of those products that offers many different options for that. Grab a can and be fearless! Feel free to ask questions, post ideas or show us photos of projects with wax in the comments section. We love hearing from the great big world of crafters, DIYers and decorators.
“I have lived a long time and am convinced that God governs in the affairs of men. If a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? I move that prayer imploring the assistance of Heaven be held every morning before we proceed to business.”- Benjamin Franklin
