Have you ever had to keep a secret about something that was so fabulous and so amazing that you could not wait until you COULD share??? This is how I have felt about the NEW metallic wax from CeCe Caldwell’s! I received some wax to try a few weeks ago, but I had to wait to share!
Now that I can share……CeCe Caldwell’s has Metallic Wax in El Dorado Gold and Sierra Silver and it is 100% natural. Just in time for the holidays, you can add some to all of your trimmings to make them glimmer and shine. Did I mention the waxes are 100% natural? Here are the ingredients: Beeswax, distilled mineral oil, non-toxic mica pigment. That is it!
The wax is so easy to use, I literally used my fingertips!
You can use a small brush too to apply the color. Apply a thin coat of wax to where you want to highlight details or give shine and glimmer. You can build the color and deepen the effect. Allow the wax to fully dry (it won’t take long now that the weather is cooler) and you are ready to shine.
I had so much fun applying the El Dorado Gold to the edge of this Jewelery Box I painted with a combination of Vintage White and Georgia Clay.
I am so thrilled with my thrift store tray I transformed with Vintage White and some of the Gold Wax.
There are so many fun things you can do with CeCe Caldwell’s paints because they are 100% natural, their properties make these paints and products very forgiving. No acrylic or latex makes these paints really easy to manipulate. Did you know you can actually use it like a clay too?
PS This chalkboard was made from one of the junk cabinet doors I found a few weeks ago!
I have a great tutorial coming out soon on how to use this method. I used the textured clay method in Vintage White, then dry brushed Traverse City Cherry over. When this was dry, I liberally applied CeCe Caldwell’s Sierra Silver Metallic Wax. It is such a gorgeous shimmery product that it was hard to really capture how beautiful it is.
