Tutorial:

  • Begin by covering the entire “M” with a basecoat of the color Drop Cloth from Dixie Belle.  You can add a second coat, it needed.  Let dry before moving on.
  • Next, use a piece of cheesecloth to rub the Champaign Ice Metallic Wax onto the entire surface of the letter.  Keep buffing the metallic wax into the piece until you get the look you desire.  Applying the metallic wax in this manner will give your piece a bolder, more metallic look.
  • PRO TIP:  If you are looking for a more opalescent finished product, you can do that by mixing the metallic wax with Dixie Belle’s Clear Coat Satin product.  Just be sure to use a putty knife to smash the metallic wax into the clear coat and then apply your mixture with a brush.  This will let some of your base color show through, creating a more subtle look.
