GFSW-237ml

Satin Finishing Wax 8oz

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.
