Parisian Grey Coloured Wax
Mix your coloured wax Approx 1:1 Artisan Clear wax with Parisian Grey pick up a small amount with your Staalmeester Pure Bristle brush and brush over in large areas back and forth then lightly wipe with a clean lint free rag.
Repeat the same step with Calicut Coloured Wax as above.
In selected dips and areas, shadow and detail with Artisan Dark wax e.g.) just around any carved details, corners and edges
