I used two coats of Old Ochre followed by one coat of Old White. I sanded the edges and some of the surface with a mouse sander to reveal the colors below. I used clear wax and while it was still moist added dark wax sparingly. Don’t worry if you get too much dark wax. Light mineral spirits on a soft cloth takes it off. You can even use a little mineral spirits mixed with the wax to make a glaze, which you can brush on and wipe off. The glaze hangs up in the grooves.
