Waxes, Sealers, Glazes
and Gel Stains Finish a Project Nicely
Sealers, Waxes, Gel Stains, and Glazes are just a few of the ways that you can finish off a refurbished item. A Maker’s Studio has so many options. This round coffee table in the photo above I used Rescue and Restore Paint Blessed and finished it off with the Light Antiquing Wax. You can shop my website for these products.
Sealers are great to be used over the Rescue and Restore paint and provide a heavy duty sealer surface on items that get dirty quickly. The Matte Sealer by A Maker’s Studio goes on as a white but dries clear. Usually two to three coats is recommended.

Gel Stains are water based and smell incredible with the essential oils that are added. They come in the following colors: Auburn Mahogany, Windsor Grey, Kensington Black, Antique Pine, English Walnut and Hazel Mahogany. Which is your favorite color? They can be purchased here.
