Black Chalk Wax

I've been meaning to do a story of black chalk wax.  I've been using it quite a lot lately and now customers are using it regularly in workshops.  Gail picked up this chair which had been totally abandoned - she saw the potential :-)


The seat frame was there and a kind hubby glued everything together.


Here's the amazing 'after'.  Gail painted the chair in Foggy Venice - a light grey chalk paint.  Then used clear and black waxes to bring out the design.  She covered the seat in Harris Tweed which she'd bought when she visited the Hebrides.  Look at those lovely knees below his kilt!!


Black wax is easy to use and can create a stunning effect.  This mirror has been painted and and waxed in the same colours as Gail used...


And so has this desk - yes we're loving the black wax!
