    Satin Finishing Wax 473mL (Pint)

    Satin Finishing Wax is a special blend of waxes designed to give oil-finished woods a rich luster. It can be used as a polish for rubbing out new finishes or as a scratch-remover for worn surfaces. It works well over both oil- and water-based finishes, including Danish Oil. We recommend a wet-sanding process followed by buffing to a soft silky sheen.

    General Finishes Satin Wax Application Steps

    Light Polishing:

    1. Shake container well.
    2. Wipe on a thin, even coat with a clean cloth.
    3. Let sit 10 minutes.
    4. Polish with a soft cloth, wiping away the excess in the direction of the wood grain.

    Buffing A Topcoat To A High Gloss:

    1. Shake container well.
    2. Wipe on a thin, even coat with a clean cloth.
    3. Let sit 1-2 minutes.
    4. Buff off excess with a buffing or sanding pad (see below) in the direction of the wood grain. The higher/finer grit you use, the easier it will be to achieve a high-gloss finish.
