Varieties of shellac resin differ primarily in color as well as properties.
The type of tree, climate conditions, the region where harvested, and the time of year harvested all play a role
in determining the different colors and shellac varieties.

Handmade Button Shellac is produced by placing Seedlac into a long narrow cloth bag and heating with a charcoal fire.
One end of the bag is attached to a windless and is gradually twisted.
The heat from the charcoal fire melts the seedlac which is forced through the cloth by pressure.
The molten lac is scraped off and placed onto metal sheets and left to dry.
The making of Lac buttons requires considerable manual skill and long experience.

Finishing Products Label Text

Label information from the product packages in a
Type Size You Can Read

If you wear reading glasses (I do) the type face on some small labels
is so tiny
a magnifying glass becomes necessary.
Even worse, sometimes a stain drip or sticky fingerprint obscures
the application information, drying times, or other important label text
& some information is too extensive to fit on the product label.

These frustrations gave birth to our  BEHLEN Label Text & Data Pages

Wax Care & Protection for wood finishes

BROWN Wax Now available in a 250ml Tin
information  &  pricing

One of our favored waxes for wood furniture is a classic
Beeswax and Carnauba formula. Antiquax from England,
a traditional ‘Paste Wax Polish’, is an excellent example.

Early furniture finishes, applied by hand or pad, were expensive to complete.
Paste wax was found the best means to maintain finish integrity and provide long-term protection.

The English know that the best protection for wood finishes is a maintained layer of “wax polish” that will absorb abrasions, repel dust and protect against humidity.
A good Furniture wax (applied sparingly) is easy to apply and buffs to a warm glow with ease.

Antiquax Fine Furniture Wax Polish was originally formulated in the early 1900’s, by master woodworker Mr. Elliott of London for protection of his furniture finishes. In 1922 he approached Partridge Fine Arts, an antiques gallery in New Bond Street, London and asked them to sell it for him. The Original Antiquax Paste Wax Polish formula is manufactured today in Manchester, England. Antiquax is used by, museums, fine furniture collectors, estates, and furniture crafters around the globe.

Antiquax Wax should NOT be used on floors.
The formulation, ideal for furniture finish protection,
is too slippery to be safe as a floor wax. For floors, use a Non-Slip Floor Wax.
