Newton's Liquid Wax rebranding.

  Some of our regular, eagle eyed customers may have noticed a packaging change for our wax range. Feedback was that you like to be able to see how much product is available at any time to save from being caught short!

The 100ml bottle is now 125ml, the 250ml stays the same.The product is just as fabulous as ever. Its key benefits are:

Very safe and easy to use with no added solvents.

Carnauba is one of the hardest waxes available.

It has a delicious and natural honey wax type aroma.

It is quick drying and it enhances and protects chalk paint and all wood finishes.

We will send out a handy tip sheet with all future sales, to ensure you get the best out of this great product.

NB We apologise for our dark wax being temporarily out of stock.

Happy Creating

Hutch dresser given new purpose.

This tired old pine hutch was a trade me purchase, rescued from a life of languishing in an old shed. 

It was lovingly restored back to life with Beige* (for the main part), Aged White on the drawers and top face.Then the whole piece was waxed with Newtons Liquid Wax in light with a little bit of dark wax to enhance the embellishments.

*NB:Since this post was posted,we have very slightly changed the blend for Beige, making it more a soft taupe colour so Beige is now renamed Taupe!

Pop over to Chinagrove Creating for details on this lovely and easy DIY makeover.

Newtons Liquid Carnauba Wax now online.


We are pleased to let you know we have added a unique Newton's Liquid Carnauba Wax to our online store range. This product differs from most waxes in that it is in liquid form. We find it very easy to use, while it still maintains the valued Carnauba properties of hardness and lustre.

We offer it in light and dark colouring. The light colour will add a richness and sheen, while the dark adds a vintage, aged depth of colour. The dark is our favourite for enhancing detailed, intricate embellishments on furniture. For any of you using this for the first time we suggest you coat the piece with light wax first and then apply the dark in small patches, buffing off as you go to ensure you control  the level of darkness you prefer.




This photo shows the effect you can create with just one coat of light wax (on the top drawer) directly over our chalk paint. We think it adds depth and patina and adds to the overall vintage appearance.

Try this product and you won't be disappointed! Among it's other attributes it is eco friendly, solvent free, packed in recyclable plastic and proudly made in NZ.

You can buy the Newton's Liquid Carnauba Wax here.

Happy Painting,
