French Polish is usually applied by skilled furniture repairers and restorers to produce a deep, warm lustre that has a glass or mirror-like finish. Usually applied over wood stains, dyes and sealers, Barrettine French Polish can be used to obtain additional depth and shine on fine furniture.
The White French Polish is an almost colourless polish, based on White Shellac, and best used on pale or bleached woods, when it is preferable to keep the colour as natural as possible.
The Brown French Polish is made from pure Flake Shellac mixed with alcohol, and is normally used for polishing darker wood species.
Ensure that surfaces to be treated are clean, dry and free from traces of dirt, dust or any other surface contaminants.
Always do a small test area before starting any project to assess compatibility and end result. 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.
surprised how fast you have to use it as it goes off so fast
Required to seal collography plate, worked well.
Much cheaper than what I have seen is most diy stores. Excellent result.
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!
This french polish is easy to apply and produces a professional finish. Will certainly buy this product again when required. The polish and other items were well packaged and arrived the day after the order was placed. First class all round.
a good rich color, i found it was best thinned a little with methylated spirits. dries in minutes and a good shine achieved. good stuff
works on all sorts of wood finishes and gives a lovely shine.
