Begin painting the detailed areas with Fluff. Next, paint the flat areas with your other color. Most likely you will get paint on the white detailed areas. Once both colors are dry just carefully go over the white again to be sure no pink is on the detailed areas.

When everything’s dry, get your clear wax and go over all the areas. You can use a rag, but I use a paint brush so I can get wax in all the details. Clear wax helps to evenly distribute the dark wax that will be going on next.
