Hi, if you are wanting to remove recently added wax, mineral spirits works wonders. Add a little to a cloth and rub it until the wax comes off. If the wax has cured (was applied over 30 days ago) you can sand it. If it has been even longer and it doesn't not feel like wax on the piece, just paint right over it.
