Reapply new painter tape over the edges of the stencil area so that you can paint the border. I used a foam brush again on the boarder, and you can make it smooth or have a bit of brush strokes, up to you.
Do some research if you want completely smooth, because once you apply the dark wax, any brush strokes will be enhanced.
Do touch-ups as necessary around the edges of your stencil area, after removing the painter’s tape. Use a dabbing motion, not brush strokes.
Finish with wax
Next, apply clear wax, then apply the black wax (or whichever shade of wax you chose).
I used one dress sock (inside out) for one wax, and the other for the second wax. Keep them separate so that you don’t get colored wax in your clear wax.
Lastly, apply whatever fancy knobs you wish! Make it YOURS!
