MMS antiquing wax was developed specifically to be used to antique paint finishes. Tinted waxes are meant to be used as a wood stain/wax in one. Because of that, the dark wax is very saturated with pigments and can look heavy and streaky on a finish if not mixed with clear wax or mineral spirits. Antiquing wax only has a small amount of pigment, so it works more like a glaze with the body of a wax. This product is also low odour and can be applied with a brush or clean cloth.
