Annie Sloan Soft Wax is the consistency of soft margerine making it easy to apply. Clear Wax is completely colorless and has very little odor. It is also water repellent and is excellent used on dining room tables and kitchen areas where moisture can be a problem. Wipe clean regularly and use a quality spray cleaner for tough areas. We recommend applying the paint, then the wax, and then sanding it for the best results. It is possible to color the clear wax with a little of our paint.
