Chestnut 500ml French Polish

Chestnut 500ml French Polish

R315,00 incl VAT
Confusingly, French-Polish refers to a range of polishes (which would include Button Polish, White Polish, Garnet Polish etc) and also to a specific polish, French Polish. Our French Polish is a traditional blend of solvent (methylated spirit) and top-quality unbleached shellac which is very similar to a Button Polish in colour. Applied either to bare timber or over a Shellac Sanding Sealer it is built up in many layers which have been described as being the thickness of a cigarette paper! French-Polish gives the rich amber glow found on fine antique furniture and requires a very specific technique for an application that is time-consuming and laborious, but the final effect has to be seen to be believed and the satisfaction of achieving it is its own reward. A French Polish finish is not very hard wearing and is recommended for items that are going to be cared for.
