French Polish is usually applied by skilled furniture repairers and restorers to produce a deep warm finish that has a glass or mirror-like finish. Usually applied over wood stains, dyes and sealers, Barrettine French Polish is used to obtain additional depth and shine on fine furniture.

Ensure that surfaces to be treated are clean, dry and free from all surface contaminates.

  1. Carry out any necessary repairs using a suitable interior wood filler
  2. Open grain should first be filled with a suitable grain filler if required

Always do a test area before starting any project and follow the manufacturer's instructions on the bottle at all times.

The traditional French polishing method is to apply it with what is known as a 'rubber'. Although the term 'rubber' is used, the polishing applicator is actually made from a cotton cloth which is wrapped around cotton wool.

The 'rubber' is a great tool for controlling the distribution of French Polish on furniture and flooring as it can be squeezed or relaxed in the hand to release or pick up more polish on the surface being worked.

  1. Pour the Barrettine French Polish on to the polishing 'rubber' (with a spot of Linseed Oil to aid application if necessary)
  2. Work the oil into the wood surface in circular or figure of eight motions
  3. Apply several coats, sanding lightly between coats if necessary
  4. Finish coat is best applied with the polish thinned with Methylated Spirit
  5. For best results apply in a warm, dry atmosphere, allowing 24 hours for the polished surface to harden

The combination of the product and instructions provided ensured an excellent finish on a reconditioned teak occasional table. No need to employ expensive French polishers anymore!
