Detailed Description

8 oz. can.
A smooth paste wax formulation to produce a white grained finish to bare or stained wood. Two hundred years ago this liming method was used to lighten the dark wood panels in various mansions of the day. Liming wax is the predecessor of the "pickling method" used today. Liming produces a distinctive effect, which is traditionally associated with oak furniture. The finish is created by filling deep pours in open grain timber with the liming wax. Even when dry, the white liming wax contrasts with the darker wood, emphasizing the grain pattern. Liming wax can be applied direct to bare wood and onto sealed surfaces.

Apply sparingly with a cotton cloth or pad, rubbing well into the grain and removing any excess. Dip a pad into the liming wax and rub into the grain, with circular overlapping strokes, until the surface is evenly covered. Wipe across the grain with a clean pad, leaving the wax in the pores. After about ten minutes, remove surplus wax from the surface by gently burnishing along the grain with a dry cotton cloth. The next day, apply an overcoat of clear Briwax for a more durable finish.
