PAINTER'S TIP: Waxing between colors allows you to build multiple color layers and sand through only one layer at a time to create a "well-loved, time-washed" appearance; even on new pieces. Waxing between coats will also allow for distressing with a damp cloth or sponge for a smoother finish without sanding. I also like to layer the wax. After one or two coats, I lightly sand some areas to make the paint color appear old and uneven as it would be if it was aged.
