10 Popular GILDERS® Paste Wax Applications

It’s typical for your latest art project to seem like it might just end up a little too similar to all the others. There’s something missing. You order GILDERS® Paste Wax and – BAM – suddenly it doesn’t take more than a soft cloth, brush, or even a finger to apply that textured finish you’ve been missing.

Considering GILDERS® Paste Wax goes on so easily and dries in just 30-60 minutes (in addition to being available in primary, secondary, and metallic colors), there’s no better option out there for new or restoration projects.


Yes, You Can Decorate Granite

If your kids are looking to paint your countertops, your probably better off telling them “no” rather than handing them a few tins of GILDERS® Paste Wax . If, however, YOU are looking to draw/paint unique patterns onto granite material, then GILDERS® Paste Wax is the best arts and crafts selection. From a Lazy Susan to a mortar and pestle, why not add the decorative pattern you feel has been missing?


Concrete Is an Application Too, Believe It or Not

Face it: your more than a kid with a piece of chalk looking to play hopscotch on your parents’ driveway. You might be working with a piece of concrete art. Perhaps your decorating a commercial floor to give it that textured flair which has been desperately absent. Whatever the case, GILDERS® Paste Wax can be applied to concrete quite easily, and once on, will STAY on.


Give Clay Sculptures a Special Finishing Touch

“I regularly use GILDRES®Paste to add accents to my polymer clay designs. It is incredibly easy to use, and a little goes a long way. It is also easy to apply glazes over it to seal it. I am slowly building my collection of various colors of GILDRES® paste!”

Lisa – Avon, CT:

Often times, clay sculptures are missing the tiny details which separate good from great. With GILDERS® Paste Wax metallic line of wax-based color mediums, those details are achieveable, quickly, and affordably.


Ridged Foam Coloring

One difficult fact about ridged foam is the awkward free-form shapes in which they can be made. Thanks to GILDERS® Paste Wax, expanded polystrene foam can now be fully covered with your desired color/texture. Do you have a foam art project requiring detailed flourish? From an architectural meeting to an afternoon arts and crafts session, GILDERS® Paste Wax makes foam as beautiful as you need it to be.


GILDERS® Paste Wax Gourd Applications

A simple gourd has now become the canvas of a new generation. Coloring gourds with GILDERS® Paste Wax creates stunning results. The personal edge of creativity and beauty can be seen on the official GILDERS® Paste Wax Gourd Applications page.

#5 WAX

Beautiful Texture in Minutes

Decorating candles has never been easier. Why pay crazy prices for a candle that isn’t even decorated to your exact specifications? Just wipe a little paint thinner across the surface of the candle, allow it to dry, then use either your finger or a small brush to apply the colors of your choice directly onto the wax surface. The GILDERS® Paste Wax will dry in under 30 minutes. Pretty cool results, eh?


Make the Old Look New

Much of the appeal surrounding GILDERS® Paste Wax is the luxurious transformation it imparts. Colors like African Bronze and our variations of Gold (Antique, Inca, Rich, and regular) all shimmer with metallic flakes, giving simple resin structures a far more sophisticated look.


Decorate Your Ceramic Pots

The fact GILDERS® Paste Wax is water resistant makes it a terrific medium for decorating pots. Whatever you decide to paint on your terra cotta (or even plastic planters), your decoration will be as textured as it is beautiful. All 28 pre-blended colors of GILDERS® Paste Wax are ready to shine, making your friends wonder exactly how you pulled off such stunning results. In fact, they won’t know how minimal the work was on your part.


Lightweight, strong, sturdy case, versatile, works effectively…these waxes work well on all surfaces I have tried so far.”
