Step 1) Paint and wax your piece

After allowing your painted projected to dry for 24 hours, apply a light coat of Natural Wax with a wax brush. Make sure that you cover the entire piece including the nooks and crannies.

Don't buff it just yet!

Step 2) Add some dust

To apply the Antiquing Dust, simply dip a dry paint brush into the container of Dust and press it into the wax on your project. You'll want to make sure to get it in the nooks and crannies where dust would naturally build up over time. Allow it to rest for half an hour.

Step 3) Dust and buff

Remove the excess Antiquing Dust with a dry brush and use a lint-free cloth to buff the entire piece until it feels smooth and dry to the touch. This creates a finished look that does not need to have any further wax or sealant applied to it!

Please note: if you apply any more wax after this step, you'll end up removing some of the dust and losing the beautiful depth you just created.
