Clear Wax-Before & After | Maine Country Home

If you’ve ever been a skeptic on the powers of Annie Sloan Waxes, check out this before and after on these child’s chairs:

Clear Wax brought out the beautiful colors we painted on these chairs.  Aubusson Blue Chalk Paint® with Antibes Green over, lightly distressed.

A little bit more detail.  It’s amazing what a huge difference a little wax makes.  Carnauba and beeswax hard at work!

This was the perfect opportunity to try the new Annie Sloan Wax Brushes.  I’m not going to lie, they’re a bit on the pricey side…but like most Annie Sloan products you get what you pay for.  They’re the same high quality natural boar bristles you find in the paint brushes.  The tip is pointed, so if you’re working on a project that has lots of corners and tight spaces it makes the job so much easier.  The shape of the brush distributes the wax nicely, I found myself using much less wax than if I were using the flat or slightly rounded wax brushes by other brands.  There was little bristle breakage after I conditioned the brush, no stray bristles in my wax, yay!  They’re worth a try, come into the shop and give one a spin!

Has anyone tried the wax brushes yet?  Let us know what you think!
