I was playing around the other day with a sample board at the shop. First I painted it with Antoinette Chalk Paint™ Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan and then – while it was still wet- wiped a good amount of the Chalk Paint™ off. Not sure why I chose to do that- but I did.
Immediately I realized how the French Gilding Wax transformed something that was simple & pretty- to something that was haute & exquisite. It made me think, “French Gilding Wax- Adding Ooh-la-la- for minimal Moola-la!” ..and thus, this post began to unfold.
French Gilding Wax is so easy to use! No fancy tool, just literally opened the top of the 30 ml glass container and using my finger- lightly touched the creamy Gilding Wax. It has a smooth-silky feel to it! Very luscious.
Using my pointer finger, I rubbed some of the Empire Gold Gilding Wax to my sample board…and WOW! The areas I wanted to accentuate- danced with luster. The French Gilding Wax was incredibly easy to use and I immediately started to think of all the projects I plan on using this with.
The Purple Painted Lady carries all four French Gilding Wax colors. By clicking on the name of the gilding wax below, it will launch you to the item in my on-line shopping cart. French Gilding Wax is sold for $21.95 per container.:
Again, the French Gilding Wax is a beautiful way to accent a piece by either kissing just the corners of your piece with it or going all out and using it as a trim. The degree of icing is totally up to you.
