Playing with Wax

I've been a busy girl. Almost every night this week, I've been painting away until 11 or later. I'm still working on some client pieces, but inbetween dry times, I'm playing with my new favorite toy - Dark Hennant's Wax. I posted about it a while back, but I didn't have the courage to do anything of "importance" with it until I got my bearings. After tonight, bearings are got. : )

I painted some of my metal card catalogs with Old White, then the dark brown wax...I love the patina on it.

All of them ready to go to my booth! (I'm keeping one for myself though!)
I even painted these formerly black metal "fruff stuff" with Old White & Hennant's Wax. I likey.

And finally, a side table with what else?....Old White & Hennant's Dark Wax.

I must say, I feel confident using them on a "real" piece now. I'm thinking a gorgeous hutch .....gotta find one first.

Happy & Busy,

Hi Flo,
Thanks for stopping by my blog! Glad to have found you. I really like the metal card catalogs painted, they look great. I just purchased 6 metal boxes of some sort today at a thrift. I was debating whether to paint them or helped me make up my mind! I've never used Wax before, I might have to try that too.

I fall in love more and more everytime I visit your blog!! When do we get to see some pictures of the door that y'all made into a table? For some reason I have a thing for doors!:)

I am laughing because I have alot of chalk paint and I recently bought 2 cans of Hannant's wax, both clear and dark. Clear, no problems....but the dark wax has me way intimidated....I think after reading your post today that I am ready to jump in and give her a try! Thanks!
How bad can it be??? Right? I can always repaint!
