Waxing Wonders

Yesterday I had my first Annie Sloan Waxing Workshop in the store.  It was fun! Everyone brought something small of their own to paint, and we painted molding pieces in a variety of colors and then applied different wax finishes to each piece.

Once we finished with the wax finishes, the girls could apply the waxing method of their choice to their furniture piece that they brought. wondering how many different things you can do with Annie's wax to justify a workshop?

Well, in a nutshell, we used the wax in simple fashions; i.e. clear wax application, dark wax with graphite, clear wax/dark wax application. Then, we did some more "advanced" techniques to show the versatility of the wax! Clear wax/dark wax mixes, making colored wax, and using a wax glaze.

The girls gave me some inspiration for this little side table during the workshop yesterday. It is painted Provence with Antibes as the accent color. Edgy, right?

I showed the girls how to get a natural crackel effect with the paint! That was a freebie. :)

Then, I waxed the entire outside with an Olive colored wax. Hints of the olive green are subtle, but seen throughout the blue.

After the Olive Wax, I hit it with dark wax in spots to bring out the crackling and darken areas of the paint.

My mom told me it was ugly. :) Ha ha!

It's important to surround yourself with people who are honest. :)

This week, I will be working on this project and I can't wait to tackle it!!!
