Briwax is the Final Finish - really!

Remember, Briwax can be used over almost every cured finish, including paint.

Briwax is the FINAL finish.

Think of the Briwax finish as the protective finish for your furniture. No matter what finish you have used, including paint, Briwax goes on TOP of that finish.

No other finish goes over Briwax.

No, not even paint is used over Briwax. NO other finish is used over Briwax.

Remember to use Briwax sparingly and to buff after each application. You’ll never have any wax build-up and you’ll end up with a museum quality finish that will enahance and protect your furniture for years.

Wax, then Buff

When you’re applying Briwax to your furniture, remember:

  • Use Briwax sparingly. A little bit goes a long way.
  • It is better to apply 3 or 4 LIGHT applications of Briwax in lieu of 1 heavy application.
  • Always, buff after each application of Briwax. That’s right – wax then buff; wax then buff; wax then buff!!

Now you’re on your way to achieving a beautiful waxed finish to your furniture!

Briwax Over Paint

A few reminders about using Briwax over paint:

  • Briwax may “lift” some of the paint – especially if the paint has not cured. You make like this look – a more rustic, antique look. Decide the look your going for prior to starting your project – don’t jump into the project without having a goal!
  • Always, always have a test board for your project! This gives you the opportunity to experiment!
  • If you want to age your painted piece without “lifting” the paint, make sure that the paint has cured. This means that the paint has entirely dried. Wait a day or two before applying Briwax. Apply Briwax in an inconspicuous area to make sure that there is no lifting of the paint.
  • If you have allowed your painted piece to cure but you still want some areas where it looks like the paint has been “rubbed” off, simply lightly sand those areas. Then apply Briwax.
  • Milk paint is a very hard paint and Briwax will have very little “lifting” effect. Milk paint will almost always need to be sanded to achieve a worn look. Milk paint was used on the chairs in this photo.

  • Light Brown Briwax is an excellent color to use over paint because it gives a soft aging color and a lovely sheen. If you need only sheen, use Clear Briwax. If you want a darker antiquing look, use Tudor Brown or Dark Oak Briwax.
