Did you know that wax acts as a resist to paint? Well, it does and can be used to create beautiful layered and distressed looks with Miss Mustard Seed’s MilkPaint. Use this beeswax puck to prevent MilkPaint™ from adhering. Perfect for layering paints for a chippy or aged look.
-Apply wax where you don’t want the paint to adhere
- Can be used between layers of paint
To achieve a layered look, apply one coat of milk paint and allow it to dry. Rub the Wax Puck over the edges, corners and “high points” of the piece. Anywhere the wax is applied will resist the paint, so make sure it is applied randomly and in places where paint would naturally wear over time. Apply a second coat of milk paint and allow it to dry completely. Distress surface with fine grit sand paper or damp cotton cloth to easily remove the paint where wax was applied, revealing the first coat underneath. Finish with MilkWax, MilkOil, or MilkCoat.
