General Waxing Tips
Apply all wax products?sparingly. Use a ?less is more? approach. An easy way to learn the proper amount of wax that should be on your brush is to remove a small portion of wax from the can and spread onto a piece of cardboard or a paper plate. Pick up the wax with your brush or cloth, from the cardboard, wipe your brush/cloth off on another area of the cardboard/paper plate to ensure it is evenly coated and not overloaded in a single spot on the brush/cloth. Apply to project, returning to the cardboard/paper place to pick up additional wax.? Often you can pick up from the area on the cardboard/paper plate that you wiped off your brush/cloth on prior. Endurance or Satin Finish should not be put over any type of wax (Clear Wax, Waxing Cream, Light/Dark Aging Cream).
If you find the wax is moving or removing the paint, it could be one of a couple things: paint is not completely dried, too much wax, or applying too much pressure.
Waxing Cream Instructions for Use
Apply Waxing Cream with a flat (not pointed) bottom brush or with a piece of lint-free cheese cloth. Apply a VERY thin coat of Waxing Cream; similar to the amount that you would have on a paint brush if you were dry brushing with paint. SPARINGLY is the key word. Rub/buff in with a cloth/rag. Most find this thin, first coat is ALL that is needed. It shines up quickly with a light buffing. You can immediately add a second coat if needed/desired. Waxing cream takes approximately 30 days to fully cure.
This is the same way I apply the Clear Wax, only I make sure I have even less on my brush than with the Clear Wax. The number one mistake made with any wax is over applying it. With all waxes, you will achieve best results if you do 2 light coats versus one heavy coat. If you are getting splotching ? you have applied too much. For continued shine and protection, re-apply the clear wax every 6-12 months under normal conditions.
ADVANTAGES OF WAXING CREAM: Uses less wax to achieve better results (more economical) Less effort (buffing) needed to get higher shine. Deeper penetration of wax into the paint.
