Similarly one may ask, why is my chalk paint showing brush strokes?
If you want to not have brush marks on your chalk painted furniture, do these key things. They might sound small, but they'll result in a smooth finish! If after the first coat you have a run or brush strokes, just lightly sand the problem areas. Clean off the dust from sanding and continue to the second coat.
Secondly, how do you get rid of brush strokes with acrylic paint? If your paint color layers are holding brush strokes you can lightly sand each layer when dry with waterproof sandpaper, using water to keep any sanded particles from getting airborn. Wipe off the sanded areas while still wet with a soft rag.

What happens if you dont wax chalk paint?
There is a potential downside to a poly finish that isn't an issue with wax. Poly topcoats can sometimes pull tannins from the wood through the porous chalk paint, creating yellowish (or sometimes pink) spots. Wax doesn't react with the wood the same way a poly does, which is why this doesn't happen with wax.
