What is White Wax?

First, what is white wax?

You probably know that furniture wax usually comes in clear and brown wax.
Also, when buying white wax, it may also go by the name of Liming wax. This process is a clear wax with the addition of a white pigment that gives a white grained finish which I adore. This is great process is perfect faded effect to bare or stained wood or painted furniture.

White Waxes Available and That are Easy to Work Wit

For the most part, when using white wax, I usually use Miss Mustard Seed wax. I have this regularly in my craft room. Actually, I am still working on my original can.

Applying White Wax and Rubbing Well into Your Project

When applying white wax to wood pedestals or furniture, the process is the same. Generally, when applying wax, it is best to apply them in small doses. After applying the wax as an example to these wood risers I rub well with a lint free rag.
