    NOTE: Although a number of these products give a gloss finish on normal application, the use of rubber to achieve the high gloss associated with French Polish would be recommended and would be essential with "cloudy" products.

    SPECIFICATION:

    Lightly sand timber to an even and smooth surface. Do not use an orbital sander as this will produce minute circular scratches which the polish will emphasise. A 400 grit abrasive paper is adequate. (Apply woodgrain filer if you require the grain to be filled). Allow 24 hours to fully dry. Brwax Spirit based or Water based can be used to achieve an old fashion antique effects on furniture. Briwax manufactured a large range of colours (see colour card) in the water and spirit bases. Allow to fully dry.

    In between coats of frech polish, ensure that the coats are fully dry ( especially when brushing), if not this will result in solvent entrapment which will lead to print marking from the table maps etc.

    It is advisable to apply a thin coat of shellac sanding sealer onto the stained surface to seal in the stain surface. Once dry, lightly sand and apply the french polish.

    HOW TO USE FRENCH POLISHES.
  • Stage 1 - Make up a polishers fad. Take some wadding and wrap it in a lint free cloth until the sole is smooth and free from creases.
  • Stage 2 - Open the fad to reveal the wadding and pour french polish onto the wadding, just enough to soak it. Wrap the wadding up and squeeze the pad until a residue of french polish shows through on the smooth sole.
  • Stage 3 - Dab a small amount of linseed oil onto the pad just to lubricate the surface.
  • Stage 4 - Starting in one corner, with even pressure, work over the surface in over lapping loops until the surface has been completely covered. If the pad starts to drags, refill the wadding as directed in stage 2 and 3.

    Allow the french polish 24 hours to fully dry off. If the polish has raised any wood fibres, lightly go over the surface with the finest flour grade paper to remove the grain fibre. Apply more coats of french polish, if required, taking the utmost care not to damaged the existing french polish applied the day before. In between coats of french polish, ensure that the coats are fully dry (especially when brushing), if not this will result in solvent entrapment which will lead to print marking.

    SPIRITING OFF.

  • This is the last stage in the use of french polishes. Take a new fad and fill with french polish and a little 1000 Thinners or methylated spirits, squeeze the fad until nearly dry. Go over the surface, again starting in a corner, in a figure of eight motion until the surface has been covered.
  • Allow the surface to dry overnight, and burnish the polish to a high gloss finish by using the fad with a small quantity of Thinners 1000 or methylated spirit and going across the surface in straight lines.

    FURHTER INFORMATION: 

  • The use of french polishes should be restricted to items or articles that are for show purposes or items that will not receive severe use. If used on dining or coffee tables, table mats must be used to prevent water and heat marks.
  • It is not advisable to overcoat french polishes with polyurethane varnishes or lacquers, as the adhesion is very poor.
