This fine museum quality wax is based on an old family recipe.  It is made from beeswax with a little carnauba wax and is then lightly tinted to a rich brown, perfect for creating an authentically aged finish on a piece of painted furniture.  It is easy to apply, provides a durable finish with a beautiful luster and has almost no odor.

According to Miss Mustard Seed, using Miss Mustard Seed Antiquing Wax, "From an artistic standpoint, I think it’s best used on a piece with a lot of texture/carvings/details/etc. or over a brighter color to knock the edge off a bit

Apply it in a small area, working it into all of the low points with a brush (this is hard to do with a cloth.)  You don’t have to use a wax brush, but any brush you don’t mind smushing around a bit.

Wipe away the excess with a cotton cloth, leaving the wax in the low points.  (Since the wax is pigmented, I would suggest wearing some gloves.)  This simulates the “dirt” that can accumulate in the nooks and crannies over time.  Think about it…when a piece is dusted, the cloth only hits the high points, leaving the dirt and dust to build up in the low points.  By mimicking this, you’re giving the piece instant, authentic-looking patina."
