Do I need to seal my project? If so, should I use Clear Wax or Varnish?
Yes! FolkArt Home Decor Chalk is a porous paint which dries to an ultra matte finish. If left unsealed, the paint can receive scratches and look unappealing. FolkArt Home Decor Wax or FolkArt Home Decor Varnish is used to seal and protect your project’s surface.
Clear wax is recommended on every indoor surface painted with FolkArt Home Decor Chalk. When buffed, the wax also gives your surfaces a soft, buttery feel. For surfaces with high traffic (such as a table top), this wax should be reapplied every 6-12 months. For outdoor surfaces or surfaces expecting high traffic, the ultra-matte varnish is best to seal and protect your project instead of the wax. It is not recommended to apply the wax and the varnish to the same surface (the wax will prevent the varnish from adhering to the paint).
