Chalk paint dries in a short time, and you ought to be ready to inform instantly whether it is going to want a 2nd coat. If so, apply 2nd coat as quickly as the first coat is dry.

Stand again and take a look at your piece to ensure you are proud of the extent of distressing. Now it’s time to apply the darkish wax. Use the identical methodology because the clear wax….work in small areas, utilizing round motions and end with straight wipes. I end the piece by making use of one final coat of clear wax on the highest whether it is a desk or another piece that can get numerous use.
