The wax is the consistency of soft margarine in a tub so it is easy to apply using a paint brush, cloth, or sponge. The wax is completely colorless and has very little odor. The wax will protect all interior wooden/painted surfaces. It is water repellent so it can be used on dining room tables and in kitchens. We recommend applying the paint and waxing it for the best results. Wax can be tinted with Chalk Paint to make a colored wax. The wax is formulated using white spirit and is made without dangerous quick drying solvents that can be found in similar products.
