Add sparkle to your projects with King Gilding Wax! In the spectrum of gilding wax- this color is not as deep as the Renaissance- but not as pale as the Empire Gold. If I was Goldilocks - I guess I could say this one is just right.
Guide to Using Gilding Waxes
Gilding waxes are easy and fun to use. They add a little sparkle to any project, humble or grand. You can use our gilding brushes to apply. Gilding waxes are the closest thing to the look of real gold leaf but are infinitely easier to apply.
By dipping your gilding brush into mineral spirits wiping the excess on a paper towel, then dipping into the wax you can create a beautiful metallic glaze for your entire piece.
Like all wax, the gilding waxes clean up with mineral spirits. If you get a bit in an unwanted spot simply saturate a cotton swab with a dab of mineral spirits and wipe the area clean. OR- I PREFER to use a little of Annie's Clear Wax on a rag and wipe off the extra gilding- this works like a charm!
In the sense of at what point do you apply Gilding Wax to your painted project piece....is the very last step. Sort of like adding roses on a Birthday cake. You don't place roses on the cake and then - refrost it. : )
