ANTIQUING EFFECT WAX POLISH
Antiquing, ageing, rustic charm, farmhouse style, cottage finish or rural architecture. There are many descriptions and many ways to apply black wax to timber or a piece of furniture.
There really isn’t a right or wrong, but rather a desired outcome. We have designed our Antiquing wax with Antiquing in mind, which is to say ‘a look representing timber that has aged’
Filthy Black can be just that! This wax has an oil base making it easy to apply and move around your work for extended time. The black dye is intentionally opaque so that age is added as black to fill the grain, voids or cracks, and the mix of oils & wax will darken (age) the surface of the work. (Rather than ‘painting the grain’)
Similarly, where applying Filthy Black to chalk or a porous painted surface, the black will fill voids and cracks but also add age & depth to cervices of raised profiles or the nooks and crannies of intricate carvings.
Any previously unsealed, new, or restored timbers, furniture and any porous surface requiring an aged or antique finish. Not considered food safe.
Note: Antiquing Wax is not black paint - it is by design, opaque and is applied for effect. Black paint is black, and only black paint will completely cover your grain/work piece.
