How to Use Frenchic Furniture Wax to Get 4 Different Effects

Frenchic furniture wax can help you transform or seal your wooden furniture. Whether you want to protect, age or define your item, our versatile wax is up to the job.

Want to find out more? Watch our video or read on to find out how you can achieve your desired look, with helpful tips and tricks from our Brand Ambassador, Craig Phillips.

About the product

Frenchic Furniture Wax is an easy to use, natural wax that is soft enough to be applied with a brush, yet durable enough to protect your furniture from potential knocks and scrapes. It is also certified child safe (EN 71:3).

Our Furniture Wax comes in four different colours depending on the effect you want to achieve. Our Clear Wax is ideal for transparent protection and won’t change the colour of the surface beneath, while our Defining Wax adds depth to furniture by drawing out any definition in the wood.

Frenchic White Wax is perfect for creating a bleached, washed-out look reminiscent of days at the beach, and our popular Browning Wax can be used to age and darken wooden furniture.


  • Frenchic Furniture Wax in your choice of colour
  • A piece of wooden furniture you want to seal or transform
  • Frenchic Original Chalk Paint (if you want to paint your item beforehand)
  • A wax brush
  • Paper towel

How to apply Frenchic Furniture Wax

Firstly, it’s important to note that our furniture waxes can be used on a variety of wooden surfaces, both painted and unpainted.

The following application process is the same for each of the four waxes regardless of your desired result.

Step 1

If you decide to paint your item, it’s best to apply two coats of our Original Chalk Paint and then leave it to dry completely before you move onto the wax.

Step 2

Using a specially designed wax brush, apply the wax over the wooden surface like you are painting, making sure that you get the product right into the corners and any detailed areas. Then let it soak in for 30-60 seconds. Don’t worry if the wax looks very light or dark when first applied, as this isn’t the finished look. 

Step 3

After about a minute, gently wipe off the excess wax with some paper towel. Be careful to leave the majority of the product in between the details and definition of the surface at this stage. Then leave the item to dry for 20-30 minutes.

Step 4

Next, you can move onto buffing. Take some clean paper towel and scrunch it up into a ball. Then using a circular motion, simply buff out the wax until you have achieved your desired effect.
