EASY FRENCH POLISH
Easy French Polish is as shellac and resin-blended polish ideal for use on furniture, carved woodwork and artefacts in rare or exotic woods. Suitable for use on small surfaces measuring 1m2 or less, it will beautifully enhance the wood’s natural finish, and produces great results quickly. Available in clear for a natural effect, it is ideal for beginners to furniture restoration.
HOW TO USE
Ensure the surface is clean and bare, removing any wax finishes with Wax and Polish Remover and any varnish with Fine Wood Stripper. Sand with extra fine abrasive paper and remove any dust with a tack cloth.
Using a good quality brush or cloth apply a thin coat of Easy French Polish. Work with the grain of the wood and avoid overlapping between strokes. Allow a drying time of three to four hours between coats. Gently rub down the dried coat using extra fine abrasive paper or Ultra Fine Steel Wool (Grade 0000) for a smooth surface. Use a tack cloth to remove any dust. Apply as many coats as necessary, following the same instructions. Three to four coats are usually sufficient to achieve a quality finish.
Always test the product first on a spare surface or inconspicuous area for colour, compatibility and end result. Best results are on small to medium sized pieces as the product dries quickly.
We recommend practicing on small pieces before applying to a larger surface.
Use a good quality flat lacquer brush and check for loose bristles as they can spoil the finish. Always work with the grain of the wood when applying Easy French Polish or when sanding the surface.
For a higher gloss finish use Burnishing Cream once the last coat has hardened for at least seven days.
French Polishes are best applied in a warm dust-free environment.
