Here’s step by step of Best Dang Wax!

Step One:

Allow Dixie Belle Paint to dry completely.

You can distress before or after waxing.


Can I paint over something that has been waxed?

Most times wax should be removed by using either mineral spirits or sandpaper.

But, you can paint right over Dixie Belle’s Easy Peasy Wax and Best Dang Wax because it is water-based.

What’s the difference between wax and glaze?

Wax acts as a sealant and helps to add dimension, whereas Glaze is more translucent on a piece and is typically used to highlight. Glaze also has a metallic sheen compared to a wax’s matte look.

Can you mix wax with chalk mineral paint?

Yes you can mix wax with paint. You can tint clear wax to be any paint color.

You can mix Best Dang Wax with any Dixie Belle Paint color; however, you’ll want to keep in mind that the mixtures will vary in color based on your selections. (ie. Rustic Red and Clear Best Dang Wax will look different than Rustic Red and Black Best Dang Wax).

Customer Reviews

I LOVE this wax! It truly is the best wax I have ever used! I have worked with several and this is just so smooth and creamy! I love the color options as well! Highly recommend!

-Kristin B.

By far my favorite wax for chalk painted furniture! This wax wipes on very smoothly, with no drag, and buffs to a beautiful sheen!

    Can I use chalk paint with just the clear best dang wax for kitchen cabinets to withstand cleaning and long term use with finger prints and food or oil stains? We have heavy use with kids. Or, would it be better to use a satin clear coat for this type of long term use? I prefer just the paint and clear wax, ( I don’t want brush strokes to show) but want to be sure before I wax it, that it will be okay for this kind of long term use. Please advise!

    1. Dixie Belle Paint Company says:

      Hi Susanne, we always recommend using Gator Hide on kitchen cabinets because it is specially designed to protect high traffic areas. While you are welcome to use Best Dang Wax in Clear or Cleat Coat Satin on your cabinets, Gator Hide will provide that water repellent, durable finish. You can apply Gator Hide with our blue sponge to avoid brushstrokes. Hope this helps. Happy painting! 🙂

    What if I want to paint over a piece that I’ve waxed? How do you go about that?

    1. Dixie Belle Paint Company says:

      Hi Desiree, you can still do this but you must allow ample time for the wax to cure. You could also try removing the wax with mineral spirits. Hope this helps!

  3. Michelle says:

    Hi! How would I incorporate brown wax when also using Crackle? After the Crackle? Thanks!

    1. Dixie Belle Paint Company says:

      Hi Michelle, using the wax after Crackle would give you the best results! Allow the layer over the Crackle to completely dry before applying the wax.
