Hampshire Sheen Original
The original recipe for Hampshire Sheen brings a protective glow to your pieces. The product warms the wood, whilst the carnauba and microcrystalline waxes add a lustre to wood whilst making it splash and fingerprint resistant. Easy to apply, Original will make a great addition to your collection of preferred finishes. For use on decorative wood only.
Original Hampshire Sheen is available in 130g lever lid pots.
Hampshire Sheen High Gloss
As the name suggests, the High Gloss variation brings a higher shine to your decorative wood. work than Original. It is just as tough, but with an additional ‘Pow’ of shine that suits some lathe projects. With a higher quantity of carnauba and microcrystalline waxes, this version is stiffer than Original but is just as easy to apply. This is already many UK turner’s ‘go-to’ finish for their turned items.
High Gloss is available in 130g lever lid pots.
Hampshire Sheen Ti-Wax and C-Wax
Ti Wax is a variation of a traditional liming wax but contains Titanium Dioxide to add ultra bright highlights to open grained woods such as Oak and Ash whilst C-Wax (or ‘Quacks’ as the developer, Martin calls it) has the same effect, but in black. After turning and sanding, and perhaps colouring, clean the grain with a brass brush then rub your wax of choice into the grain of the wood. Wait for it to dry, then buff off leaving the surface with a good shine and white or black grain patterns. You can then lightly overcoat it with Hampshire Sheen Microcrystalline for an even brighter, tougher finish. The carnauba and microcrystalline waxes are tough and hard wearing. In testing, no amount of hard rubbing with finger tips or cloth could remove the finish easily. For use on decorative wood only.
Both Ti-Wax and C-Wax is available in 130g lever lid pots.
Hampshire Sheen Microcrystalline Wax
Our quick drying Microcrystalline Wax is comparable to the market leader of microcrystalline waxes and is an ideal protective finish for many different projects and has many uses besides wood.
Both Fingerprint and water resistant, Microcrystalline Wax is a hard wearing overcoat to wax and other finishes for an extra level of gloss and protection to your decorative wood items.
Just a little of the product goes a very long way, so use it sparingly!
Microcrystalline is available in 130g lever lid pots.

Hampshire Sheen Pre-Thinned Cellulose Sanding Sealer
Hampshire Sheen developer Martin tried lots of different sanding sealers and has discovered this cellulose sealer and thinners mix to be our most suitable for both standard work, and for work with added colour or texture.
Brilliant for Use Over Coloured Woods
This is our preferred sealer for use over the Intrinsic Colour Collection, or other water based wood stains. Note that is common for a little of the added colour to be removed from the surface when using this product. See the Intrinsic Colour Collection for specific usage advice.
For best results, we recommend the use of the range of Hampshire Sheen finishing products. Hampshire Sheen Cellulose Sanding Sealer is also suitable for use with lacquers, varnishes, sprays, paste waxes and other finishing products.
Hampshire Sheen Original, High Gloss and Ti-Wax are available in both the USA and Canada, with the paste waxes being produced there, by hand, by two independent turners.
