What is the difference Between Antiquing Glaze, Espresso Wax and Black Wax?

What is the difference Between Antiquing Glaze, Espresso Wax and Black Wax?

I received a great question from an online Fusion Mineral Paint customer about the difference between some of the different available finishes, namely Antiquing Glaze, Espresso Wax and Black Wax

I put together a short video showing the three next to each other. It can be hard to tell the difference over a computer screen but hopefully the video will give you a better idea.  In the video below, I painted a wooden plaque with two coats of Casement then applied Antiquing Glaze (top section), Espresso Wax (middle section) and Black Wax (bottom section.

My personal go-to antiquing finish is usually Antiquing Glaze because it has more of a tobacco color rather than a chocolate color (personal preference) and I like that you put it on and it dries and I can use Tough Coat on top of the Glaze if it's a high traffic area. 
I love answering questions! Please let me know if you have any other questions.  The best way to get ahold of me is to contact me here ; )
