Fusion Distressing Beeswax Block

By Fusion

Our 100% natural Beeswax Distressing Block™ is the perfect tool to easily distress any project you are working on.

For the exact placement of distressed lines and edges, press the wax block where you would like to see the distressed antiquing effect between layers of paint.

Anything that is applied on top of the waxed areas will easily distress without too much pressure from sanding! You will notice this resistance once you are giving your piece a light sanding at the end of your application of all layers of paint. Any paint underneath the wax will remain in place, and any paint applied on top of the wax will come off effortlessly, allowing for the perfect distressed look.

How To Use: 
Press block along edges or areas where you want to see distressing. These areas will resist paint. Paint piece, then give light sanding or wet sanding to remove wax and distress the paint.

What does it do?
Our Beeswax Distressing Block™ makes it extremely easy to distress a piece painted with Fusion. Apply it as a way to resist paint and make it easy to sand, even after a few days of drying time. Using the Beeswax Distressing Block™ makes it easy to control exactly where you distress your piece so you can predict the results.

Can I paint over it?

It is meant to be painted over, but only so that it is easy to remove the paint later on! If you want a solid painted finish, you will have to remove the Beeswax with mineral spirits.

What is the difference between wet and dry sanding?

Wet sanding is just dry sanding with a little bit of water added! By adding water, you reduce the friction between the sanding paper and the surface you’re sanding, allowing you to get a super smooth finish. In addition, adding a bit of water helps to re-activate the paint and make it even easier to sand. This makes any distressing you do look very naturally worn.

What is the difference between this and your other wax products?

This wax product is a solid block of beeswax. Our other waxes are softer and meant as top coats.
