Gilding Waxes for Chalk Paint®

The Gilding Waxes you asked for are at Brocante Home!

Guide to Using Gilding Waxes 

Gilding Waxes are easy and fun to use. They add a little sparkle to any project, humble or grand. You can use a small brush but personally I prefer using my finger to apply the waxes. There is something about the way your finger can just glide across the surface of a bead or relief that looks natural and authentic. Gilding Waxes are the closest thing to the look of real gold leaf but are infinitely easier to apply and come in several stunningly beautiful colors, including silver.


Like all wax the gilding waxes clean up with a little no-odor mineral sprits. If you get a bit in an unwanted spot simply saturate a cotton swab with a dab of mineral spirits and wipe the area clean. 

Give them a try - they are addictive!

Happy Painting!  Rachel
