Glaze or wax?

Which is better for making a car painted panel darker P/B Blackhole or a dedicated wax for dark paint? Many thanks.

Glaze then wax ontop.
Blackhole fills minor swills, don't know if it actually darkens the paintwork

The more swirls etc on the paint, the more light will be scattered (ie reflected in all different directions), this has the effect of causing the paint to appear lighter.

Filling the marks in (or polishing them out) reduces the scattering, and hence can make the paint appear darker.

prima amigo glaze will definately make it darker or blackfire gloss enhancing polish and blackfire black ice wax will make it slightly darker too
