Fiddes Supreme Wax Polish nourishes, protects and offers a lasting depth of sheen which enhances the natural beauty of any real wood surface.

This Wax Polish can in general be applied to most other wood finishes including water stain, solvent stain, French polish, varnishes, lacquers and oils. It can be applied to bare wood as a wax finish in its own right. Supreme Wax Polish will revive old or tired looking wooden areas and is suitable for use on all interior wood such as furniture, floors, skirting and dado rails etc.

Note: Fiddes Supreme Wax Polish can easily turn from a wax to a thick liquid if exposed to warm temperatures, vibration in transit or if the tin is shaken. The wax can still be applied in this liquid state and is actually preferred by some customers.

To get the wax to return to its solid state, simply stir and store in a cool place such as a garage or under stairs cupboard. Small tins of wax can be put into the fridge to solidify more quickly if required.

400ml tins of wax will solidify within 12 to 24 hours if stored in a cool environment, 5 ltr tins may take 24 to 48 hours.

Sand the wooden surface with a medium sandpaper of around 120 grit, through to a medium / fine grit of 180 to 220 grit. Sand in the direction of the grain where possible, ensuring the removal of any residual glue and blemishes from the surface of the wood prior to the application of the Supreme Wax Polish. Take care to remove all traces of sanding dust from the area to be waxed. A coat of Manns Shellac Sanding Sealer can be used on open grained woods prior to application.

All untreated surfaces need to be clean and dry before application

Fiddes Supreme Wax Polish can be applied with a clean cloth such as stockinette, although most cloths such as T-Shirt or old bed sheeting will suffice. Wax Polish can also be applied with grade 0000 wire wool, which smooths the surface of the wood whilst waxing it at the same time. To achieve a deep lustre, buff the waxed surface with a clean, coarse cloth such as stockinette.

To get the best results, apply sparingly working on small areas at a time. Leave the wax polish for around 10 minutes before buffing with stockinette cloth or a drill buffing brush to achieve a shiny finish.

Buffing by hand requires some work to achieve a high sheen level whereas a drill buffing brush makes the process quicker and easier. If using a drill buffing brush it's important to let the bristles do the work. If you push down on the bristles they will start to soften and remove the wax from the surface of the wood.

When maintaining pre-waxed wood it is advisable to use a clear wax (Fiddes call their clear one: 'Light'), coloured waxes are best used for repairing fine scratches, for example when a lighter shade is showing through or they are used to change the colour of wood when the initial finishing process is done.

Additional coats offer an improved patina and overall durability and although not essential fresh wax coats can be applied annually. The coloured waxes offer greater depth.

Fiddes Supreme Wax Polish has a shelf life of around 2 years and is ideally stored in an air tight container at normal room temperature. Any wax exposed to very hot or freezing temperatures should be discarded.

  • Flammable: Contains White Spirit.
  • Keep away from sources of ignition: No Smoking.
  • Keep out of reach of children.
  • In case of contact with eyes rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice.
  • Wear suitable gloves and eye/face protection.
  • Storage: Keep container tightly closed and store in a well-ventilated area.

Drying times may vary depending on room temperature, humidity and the type of wood being waxed. Recommended drying time for a thin coat of Fiddes Supreme Wax Polish is around 5 minutes with thicker coats taking up to 15 minutes.

In my opinion Fiddes make the waxes on the market at the moment, and buying the 5 litre tin makes it very cost effective by Amanda Barrett

Superb, goes on beautifully and polishes out really well, leaving no streaks, if applied correctly.

Gives a very nice finish. Gets a little lighter and yellower when it is fully dry and buffed but very easy to apply.

Simple to use, great effect, highly recommend by R.

I bought this polish after scouring the internet for weeks to find something that would turn my cheap softwood scaffolding planks into expensive-looking oak-effect shelves. The information out there is ridiculously confusing, so I was so relieved to find this straightforward, quick-drying wax polish. It really couldn't be easier. Sand down the board (I didn't go all the way to the finest grade, as I wanted some markings to show the wood's origins, and a "rustic" look), wipe with a damp cloth to remove excess dust, leave to dry, then (whilst wearing gloves) simply dip a rag into the tin (you can stir the polish if you want it more liquid) and rub into the wood following the grain. I wiped off the excess immediately with another (clean) cloth, as I wasn't after too dark a finish. I then left it off to the side to dry, which only took 5 minutes, if that. Left with a gorgeous, smooth, uniform, rich colour. I'd say it was pretty true to the image colour, and was as expected. Could not be easier to use and also the price is really reasonable! Cannot recommend highly enough.

Easy to use and leaves a lovely finish by Edith Bowman

I'd had some units made and the carpenter used this to finish them. So when I got some new doors I used the same stuff. The doors look so good. I am really pleased with them. The was is easy to use and goes a long way. Have sanded and done some drawers now as well.

Brought the wood to life by G. Stott

I was looking for a suitable wax that would enhance the look of my refurbished and upcycled sideboard. Having watched a few YouTube videos I cam across the recommendation for Fiddes Supreme Wax Polish. I was not sure whether this would be suitable, but decided to purchase from Wood Finishes Direct. I am so pleased I did, this was the best purchase I have made in awhile and after my application and subsequent drying time I buffed my unit and it just came to life like a new piece of furniture. I even applied a few more liberal coats and buffed to a beautiful shine. Great product and well worth the money. Have now used it on 3 more cabinets and I am delighted with the finish.
