Are all Waxes Created Equal?


I had a lovely day today…. bought an Olio Clip Lens for my iPhone (should be fun to play with) and went to High Street Antiques for some Annie Sloan Clear Wax. 

When I saw the price, it got me thinking.  Is this Annie Sloan Clear Wax really better than the BriWax I already have at home?  I did not immediately know the answer to that question so I went ahead and bought it anyway….

Is AS Wax better because it is formulated differently to work specifically with her Chalk Paints, or is this just a trick because we are all dumb enough to fall for it? 

I mean really I don’t mean to be skeptical, but $28 for clear wax??  Gulp!  Seems steep… but then again the AS Chalk Paint is no bargain either. 

Guess I should finish atleast one project with ASCP before I start complaining… it is supposed to be life changing right? 

I will admit that I am loving what I’ve gotten done thus far – with my gossip chair and my black chinoiserie style nesting coffee table (phew that’s a mouthful).

It’s a Head-to-Head folks… the grudge match of the Century… or could it be the most dramatic Rose Ceremony ever for Furniture Waxes?  Who will get the Rose?

I’m kind of a cheap-o.  I don’t like to spend unnecessarily.
 
Let’s put this in perspective…

Why is this…

AS Wax $$

So cry!

No really… for any of you who are aficionado's, I’d really like to hear some opinions?  I’ll chime in more once I complete a little more investigative journalistic efforts.
