A couple of months ago when Prima Marketing sent me a bunch of transfers to give away, they also threw some extra Metallique waxes into the box.
I’ve been using these waxes since late last year and I gotta say, I love them.
I used to use Rub ‘n Buff for all of my metallic waxing needs, but I really didn’t care for the little tubes that it comes in. The plastic screw tops always cracked on me and then the wax dried out and clogged the tube. I also felt like it didn’t dry as hard as the Prima Marketing wax does. It seemed like more of the wax rubbed off again when I tried to buff it. Maybe that’s just my opinion though (or user error on my part), I didn’t do any scientific testing or anything.
Regardless, I’ve gotten great results using the Metallique wax.
My favorite use for metallic wax is sprucing up old metal knobs and drawer pulls. It’s such an easy way to refresh them. Simply clean your knobs with soap and water, let dry and then apply the wax with a q-tip. Let the wax harden for a few hours and then buff to bring out the shine.
The Bronze Age on the knobs shown above is a nice warm bronze-ish brown color. I love pairing this color with Fusion’s Ash or Dixie Belle’s Gravel Road, both dark charcoal greys.
I also love the Vintage Gold which looks a lot like gold leaf to me.
The wax works well on the clean lines of mid-century hardware …
but also on more ornate knobs or pulls …
I had yet to try some of the other colors that are available, so I pulled out some spare hardware to test them out.
From top to bottom they are Old Silver, White Gold, Aged Brass and Rose Gold. Aren’t they pretty? I’m patiently waiting for just the right piece to come along for that gorgeous Old Silver, and I just used the White Gold on a mid-century piece that I’ll be sharing in another week or so.
There are plenty of other ways you can use the wax besides just on drawer hardware. It also works beautifully to add a little shimmer to ornate frames.
The Bronze Age was perfect for disguising the shiny chrome ‘neck’ on my dress form, Collette.
Now for the fun part, Prima Marketing sent me a dozen of these waxes in various colors to give away! I’m going to give them away in sets of four (approx. value: $30). So, we’ll have three winners today.
The basic rules: to be eligible to win today’s prize leave a comment on this blog post telling me which one of the colors you like most. Your comment must be left on the blog, not on Facebook or Instagram. You are not required to follow my blog, although if you don’t already follow me, it would be awesome if you did!
I will randomly draw the names of three winners from all of the comments left on this post by Sunday, August 26, 2018 at high noon (U.S. central time).
The fine print: no purchase necessary, you must be 18 years of age or older to win, void where prohibited by law, the number of eligible entries received determines the odds of winning, if the prize is not claimed by Friday, August 31, another name will be drawn at random to win, yada, yada, yada … good luck!
