Shabby Paints Zero VOC VAX Top Coat is not a wax. It’s a combination of high quality Varnish and Acrylic resin that applies easily with a damp brush or damp applicator sponge for a durable matte finish. No need to buff, just wipe on in a thin smoothed out layer, let dry and apply a second coat if needed. Unlike wax, VAX doesn’t need to be reapplied, is perfect for kitchens, bathrooms and outdoors. It contains all safe ingredients made in the USA. It’s also nonabrasive, it won’t harm your painted pieces, metal, glass, plastic or furniture.
VAX dries to a wax like matte finish with all the depth and beauty you are looking for minus the buffing, toxic fumes, need to reapply and damage to our environment. It protects your piece against heat, scratches, ultraviolet rays and harmful pollutants. Looking for protection and depth, or maybe some shimmer? Then you are looking for reVAX. It comes in Hazelnut, Black, Glitter, White, and Pearl. Be sure to check out how to easily stain and protect in one step with our Hazelnut or Black reVAX.

Only two coats in a 24 hour period are recommended. Please allow VAX and reVAX to cure, this will depend on humidity and how thick it was applied.

ReVax comes in different colors to give your piece depth, dimension, texture, age or even some glam. If you are using a dark reVAX over chalked paint we always recommend using Sheer VAX first to give you a smooth surface to work with. This helps give you time to manipulate the dark reVAX.
