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.

Buffing A Topcoat To A High Gloss:
