Waxing Furniture & Fine Wood Finishes
Apply waxes Sparingly – a little wax goes a long way!
For all wax polishing, wait until all the solvent evaporates prior to buffing. Paste Waxes differ in composition. For ease of application waxes are blended with solvents to form a paste.
Some formulations require longer times for the solvent to evaporate.
It is important to apply all paste waxes sparingly, in a THIN EVEN coat.
This will assure even drying and yield an even sheen result when buffing
(a thicker area of wax will dry slower, and those areas will not buff to as high a sheen).
If you buff too soon, the buffing is just redistributing and pushing the soft (uncured) wax around.
I usually wait on Antiquax™, and other similar furniture makers waxes for an hour and up to four hours before buffing.
Use a Soft 100% cotton cloth (free of any seams or stitching) for buffing.
Old worn out 100% cotton t-shirts, linens, diapers and well used and laundered terry cloth will work well. The softer the buffing cloth, the higher the resulting sheen.
On older pieces of furniture, and other wood surfaces, it is important to clean the item first of any dirt, oils or accumulated grime. Residual oils, grime and some aerosol care products left on the surface can prevent the wax from drying properly and can lead to a splotchy uneven result.
Maintain and protect the finish and waxed surface with another thin coat of wax as needed.
For most wood furniture, a good wax layer is the best protection against moisture, dirt and abrasion.
Wax is the perfect protection for most fine furniture finishes.
Avoid the use of all maintenance oils,
& aerosols or care products containing silicone.
