Surface Preparation
Before applying FX Wicked Wax® or FX Liquid Wax over base FX Stucco, FX Marmorino or FX Travertino® coat, ensure the
surface is free of dirt and dust. There should be no grease or stains. Any efflorescence or mould should have been
treated beforehand at the initial preparation stages before applying FX Stucco Undercoat. See appropriate FX Product
Information Sheets.
Application
FX Wicked Wax®
Place a small amount of wax (the size of a twenty cent coin) onto the centre of a stainless steel trowel. Move trowel
over the surface leaving a fine film of wax on the surface. Then go back over the area with a clean trowel, removing
any unwanted or excess wax, and burnishing the surface. Work one square metre area at a time. Once satisfied that
the area is waxed correctly, allow to dry completely. Then polish with a clean white rag or lamb’s wool buffer.
FX Liquid Wax
Place a small amount of FX Liquid Wax onto a clean white rag. Apply product in a circular motion. As the liquid wax
penetrates the surface, continue to buff with the rag or alternatively, wait until the wax is completely dry then polish
with a lamb’s wool buffer.
