This versatile water based, acrylic wax can be burnished with a spatula, creating a beautiful, Venetiano look. Use in its virgin form or tint with acrylics or universal colorants. Can also be used over our crackle and plaster products. Washable!
Clear Flat Wax is a 100% acrylic, eco-friendly simulated wax that can be applied over any water based Venetian plaster. It richens the color with a beautiful mat sheen while providing a protective coat to the surface. Once the wax is applied over our plasters you can then burnish it with a spatula to create a lustrous glossy sheen that feels like marble.
APPLICATION: Using a spatula, thinly apply one coat of Clear Flat Wax in a crosshatch pattern. Hold spatula on a low angle as you apply a thin layer overlapping each stroke. Avoid thick application because it will result in hazing. One coat is sufficient for protection. Allow 8 hours to dry before burnishing. To create a beautiful glossy sheen, simply burnish by rubbing your spatula knife at a shallow angle. When applying Clear Flat Wax over an uneven surface, crackle, or stencil, use a damp cellulose sponge rubbing in a circular motion. * See our training videos for further instructions.
TINTING: Faux Like A Pro’s Clear-Flat Wax can be tinted with artists acrylics or universal tints. Simply squeeze acrylic or universal tint into the wax and stir with a plastic spoon. The more tint you add, the more solid and opaque the wax will become. For a touch of shimmer add our Galaxy Wax into the Clear Flat Wax. Choose from our eight luxurious colors or combine to create your own custom shades.
