Not only can you create custom Jolie Paint colors, but you can mix your very own custom colored Jolie Finishing Wax by adding Jolie Paint to your wax. This is the perfect way to add a unique layer of color to your piece.

Tools & Materials
After painting your piece with Jolie Paint, use your Jolie Wax Brush to apply a coat of Jolie Finishing Wax in Clear in manageable sections of 2-3 square feet at a time. You will see the Jolie Paint color become slightly darker after the wax is applied. Proceed to step two before beginning to wax the next section.
Wipe away excess wax using a lint-free cloth and medium pressure. As the cloth becomes saturated with wax, you will need to replace or move to a clean area of your cloth so that it will continue to absorb wax. Repeat steps one and two until you have covered the entire surface with Clear Finishing Wax. This will protect your piece and allow you to have more control when using the colored Finishing Waxes.
Mix about two parts of Jolie Finishing Wax with one part of Jolie Paint on wax paper or a paper plate. If you want the Finishing Wax to be more translucent, you can alter the ratio and add additional wax to the mix. Mix the paint and wax together really well.
Apply your custom colored Finishing Wax.
Remove the excess wax with a soft, lint-free cloth. If you want to remove some of the coloration, use a small amount of Clear Finishing Wax on a clean cloth and wipe over the surface. Let the wax dry overnight before adding additional coats or buffing. Be gentle with your piece for the first two weeks until the wax has fully cured and hardened.
PRO TIP: With the addition of the paint to the Finishing Wax, the wax is likely to dry faster.
