    Was the wax " renaissance wax" as it has that semi-shine to it ( not wet but not too dry so the paint looks faded )

    Bees wax is just as fine. Heat it until it becomes liquid and apply a thin layer with a fine brush. You will need to re-heat it once in a while.

    As Datrus noticed-its bees wax:natural,clear,easy to remove product.Renaissance wax is too expensive for effect it gives-i would say not that worth.
