So, I am about to do a little upcycling and have decided to try this wonderous paint. I think I might go for Ochre but unsure how the waxing bit works, do you literally paint wax on all you have painted or just bits, doesn't it feel greasy, and if you buff it up as on the vids doesn't it go shiny and defeat the object of a chalky finish?
Just a novice here, all answers gratefully received!!

i recently upcycled a bookcase in annie sloan. all i did was dip the brush into the wax and brush it on all over and no it didnt go shiny after buffing.
good luck.

Another question not wax related.....can I paint a table that has leather inlaid or should I remove the leather?

I used the as paint recently on some chairs. Skipped the waxing stage and they are fine.
