Liberon Special Effects Liming Wax, 250ml
Liberon Special Effects Liming Wax is formulated to offer a white shade to stained or bare wood. Special Effects Liming Wax produces a traditional 'limed finish' normally associated with period oak furniture. Liming wax is ideal for application on woods such as oak or those which normally exhibit distinctive deep grain pattern. On application, liming wax fills the open wood pores, offering contrasting tone and emphasising the grain across the whole surface area, typical of a traditional 'limed' finish.
Ensure the surface is clean, dry and free from any previous finishes. Open the grain with a Liberon Bronze Liming Brush. On softwoods such as pine, use a wire brush or coarse abrasive paper to score the timber.
If you wish to enhance the effect, colour the wood with Liberon Palette Wood Dye before applying the liming wax. Liberon Palette Wood Dyes are available in a wide selection of wood shades.
Work the liming wax into the grain of the wood with Rustins Fine Steel Wool (0000), Rustins Extra Fine Steel Wool (+0000) or a lint-free cotton cloth and wipe over with a clean cloth to remove excess. Allow to dry for 3 minutes.
Remove the white haze using a cloth and apply Liberon Black Bison Neutral Paste Wax Polish, or if a water-resistant finish is required, with Rustins Danish Oil.
Apply a second coat of of Liberon Black Bison Neutral Paste Wax Polish and buff or add another coat of oil. The more coats of oil that are applied the greater the water resistance and the higher the shine.
Important: Always test product on a spare surface or inconspicuous area for colour, compatibility and end result.
Liming Wax is available in 250 ml and 500 ml containers.
