Use a small Chalk Paint® Wax Brush to apply Dark Chalk Paint® Wax generously over the surface of the wood.

Can you paint over dark wax?
Yes- you can paint over wax the same day you applied the wax… BUT – the wax must feel dry to the touch and NOT tacky. Annie also recommends doing only three applications of anything in one day. So, if you painted two coats of paint and applied one coat of wax TODAY- then you must wait till tomorrow.
