We carry more than paint!
We now stock a full line of Wise Owl Products and painting accessories. We answer lots and lots of questions every week about ALL of the products so this post will answer some of the FAQ’s. We’ll introduce you to some of the new items we have too!
Paint Pints $18/each
38 colors +6 special edition colors – have you seen the new colors yet?
One of the most popular questions we get is “What do I need to do to prep my piece of furniture?”. The answer is simple. Make sure it’s clean of dust, dirt, oil. Use a damp cloth with a little dish soap to get it clean. You DO NOT have to sand or prime. We swear!

Clear Wax – $12 each
If you are just starting out. We recommend you use clear wax on all of your pieces.
Apply with a wax brush or lint free rag. Then use another clean lint-free cloth to buff. Like Karen says, “Wax on – Wax off”. We have tins and scented “sweet orange” wax sticks. The wax sticks are like push-up pops and are great for large flat surfaces. The sticks are $14 each.
Black Walnut (brown), Black Wax and White Wax – $12 each
Once your piece has been waxed and buffed with clear wax, add depth and color with these three options.
It’s the same process, apply with a brush or cloth and buff. If you apply too much, use clear wax to “erase” the colored wax. Just be sure you use different cloths or brushes for clear wax and the colored waxes.
Metallic Waxes – $14 each
Champagne gold, metallic silver, pearl!
These are all pretty and subtle options that add just a little glimmer to your piece of furniture.
Glazes – $19
Metallic silver, metallic bronze, metallic copper, black, black walnut, driftwood, black pearl, white wash.
Glazing comes with a bit of a learning curve but once you get the hang of it, you’ll be anxious to use these because they add so much character. Glaze can be applied with a rag or a brush. It dries quickly so the trick is to use a clean lint-free cloth to wipe off the excess. Click here to read Wise Owl’s article about glaze, you’ll learn a lot!
Hemp Seed Oil – $11
This natural oil is AMAZING. It revives natural wood. It’s great for old pieces of furniture that have lost their luster, old wood trunks, mid-century modern pieces that can use a little pick-me-up and more. Click here to read Wise Owl’s Hemp Seed Oil article.
Simply use a clean rag to apply it and you’ll see, the difference is impressive.
Lemon Verbena Furniture Salve – $15
I can’t begin to explain to you how good this stuff smells!
Use it like the hemp oil, or use it in old dresser drawers to help with the musty smell, it’s even great for dry skin and it’s ALL natural. This might be Wise Owl’s most popular item right now. Click here to read all about it!
