If you hate spending energy and time on applying and buffing wax, come learn our one simple trick that we promise will make it easier and quicker! In this brand new video tutorial company co-founder, Rosanne will show you her simple trick for making our all-natural wax easier to use!

The wax and wax brushes used in this tutorial can be found on our website at www.countrychicpaint.com.

Step 1: Start With a Painted Piece

Apply any color of Country Chic Paint to your piece and distress as desired. Make sure you let it cure for at least 24 hours before moving on to the next step.

Step 2: Scoop Out Some Wax

Since our wax is made with 100% all-natural ingredients and no chemicals, it is a bit harder than some other waxes you may have used in the past. This means it can sometimes require a bit of elbow grease when you’re applying and buffing it. Luckily, we have a simple trick to help!

Start by scooping out a small amount of wax from your jar onto a microwave safe dish. You won’t need much; you’ll be surprised how far it goes!

Step 3: Microwave for 5-10 Seconds

Every microwave is slightly different and this will also depend on how much wax you’re using, but we recommend starting with just 5 seconds. You don’t want the wax to completely melt, you just want to soften it.

Step 4: Apply the Wax

Use a wax brush or a lint-free rag to apply a thin coat of wax over your entire piece.

Step 5: Buff It Dry

A quality wax job can be rebuffed again over time to it's previous luster, when it fails to come back, then it's time to rewax. Slightly moistening the application rag to make it easier to apply the wax will help as well as the aforementioned preheat. If you can pour it on or spray it on, it isn't going to be nearly as effective as a good hard carnauba/ beeswax mixture is.
