Below is our demostration on double tones wax

STEP 1 : Apply 2 layers of Macoavell plaster on your wall. Here, we are using Vellplas- Matte marmorino.

Step 2 – After approximately 4 hours of drying time, you can now apply Macoavell metallic cera wax in any colour you want to create the first colour tone (wax used in picture: translucent blue). You can apply by either trowel, cloth or sponge. Then, wipe off the wax right away using dry and clean cloth to buff off the excess wax.

Step 3 – To achieve double wax tone, add on different colour of Macoavell cera wax to layering the textures and colours up (wax used in demonstration: translucent green). Then, similar to step 2, buff off the excess wax straightaway.

Finally, this is how the end result looks like after 2 layers of wax! Enriching effect of this colour combination is truly fascinating isn’t it?
