Give your multi-media projects a vintage luster with the Old Silver Metallique Wax from the Art Alchemy Collection by Finnabair for Prima! The package includes one .68 fluid ounces of beeswax-based paste that is designed to add a rich metal-like finish to most surfaces and elements.
The first thing I do when paints or waxes arrive is to do a swatch on both black and white cardstock. I just smear it with my finger--about 1 1/2" long and about 1/2" wide--and then I label the sample. The silver gives a very nice shimmer on both but it looks a little darker on white. I think all the waxes look different depending how the item is being viewed either straight on or at an angle. There is also a bleed through which looks almost like a grease mark on the three Metallique Waxes that I've tried. Probably not an issue on mixed media projects. Old Silver is a lovely color--shines like a new dime. I've read about the odor of the waxes and like another reviewer I think they smell great!
This is a very pretty color, can’t go wrong with a silver color. If you are sensitive to scents then you will not like this product. It lingers on the project and since I used my finger to rub it on I could smell it all day, even though I washed my hands several times after using it. I don’t understand why Prima needed to add scent to a wax but I won’t be buying another one.
