    When you think of wax, what comes to mind? Is it car wax, surfboard wax, or perhaps ear wax? Well, for me, the first thing that pops into my head is Finnabair’s Art Alchemy Wax. This versatile product comes in a stunning array of colors, ranging from bold and brilliant colors to faux metallic finishes. Its smooth, creamy texture glides on effortlessly, making it perfect for adding highlights and making intricate details pop in any project.

    Finnabair’s Art Alchemy wax line offers a diverse range of colors and finishes, including:

    1. Opal Magic: This wax changes color depending on the background it’s applied to, producing a vibrant, shiny result on dark surfaces and a delicate pearled iridescent effect on lighter backgrounds.
    2. Wax Paste: Leaves behind an opaque layer of color on any surface, ideal for accentuating small details.
    3. Matte Wax: Applies a layer of color without the shine, curing with a flat finish.
    4. Metallique Wax: Available in various colors, this wax creates a metallic finish on any surface it touches.
    5. Antique Brilliance: Creates a vintage effect with a shine on dark surfaces, while on lighter surfaces, it produces an antique effect with a touch of iridescence.
    6. Antiquing Wax: Provides an aged or worn look on metal and wood, leaving a flat finish unlike Antique Brilliance.

    Here are some tips for using wax effectively:

    • Wax is typically applied using a wax brush, cloth, sponge, or even your fingers, and it spreads easily, leaving a shiny finish.
    • It cures in approximately 24 hours and dries permanently. It’s recommended to use wax as a top or final layer.
    • While wax doesn’t necessarily require sealing, if you desire extra protection, you can apply a water-based polyacrylic over it.
    • Start with a small amount of wax and gradually add more as needed, as a little goes a long way due to its opacity.
    • Don’t hesitate to experiment with bold ideas. If you’re not satisfied with the result or make a mistake, you can simply wipe away the wax with a soft cloth before it dries.


    Have you tried incorporating wax into your mixed media pieces? If so, what was your experience like? Did you enjoy the effect it added to your creations?
