Needing some advice from some waxers out there. I decided to start going the wax route with some of my work and stumbled into a slight issue today. I have a small Christmas project made of walnut that I was going to do little wax experimentation on. I ordered me some Renaissance wax and slapped a coat on this morning. Well, after it dried and I buffed it out I noticed the wax turned white in parts of the grain. I remembered reading something about coloring wax darker than the project because this will happen, but it totally slipped my mind. (don’t you lover remembering stuff like this “After” the fact?...lol)
Well, I am really concerned seeing how I have a very special keepsake box drying right now (2 good soakings of Danish oil) made of mostly walnut, and Renaissance wax is what I plan on finishing it out with. I am terrified I may have the whiting issue with it.
So what do I need to do to color this wax….. Please help!...lol
