To use Finnabair Wax ...
Start with a dried and clean surface. Apply a dab of wax with your finger, a sponge, soft piece of fabric or a stencil brush (round, stiff bristle brush). Work gently to rub in and around your elements and leave to cure for an hour. You may wish to buff the finished layer afterwards for extra shine.

To apply wax to a non-porous surfaces and elements like metal embellishments, brooches, beads, glass and plastics, seal your work first with a thin application of good quality gesso (either clear, white or black). Black gesso is ideal when using Metalliques and Opal Magic.

Separation is natural ...
- As with any products manufactured using oils, some separation may occur (in the tube). Many factors can cause separation of pigments, binders and oils. This is not a defect and is easily remedied.
To fix - Simply squeeze out a small portion (pea sized amount) onto your palette and use a spatula or palette knife to mix together, to recombine the ingredients. Once the wax is blended again, it is ready to use.

Originally manufactured in little tubs, these convenient tubes of wonderful colourful wax medium have a pretty aromatic perfume (that should fade when used on the project, similar to oil paints).
