Embellishing Waxes

Hampshire Sheen Embellishing Waxes

Hampshire Sheen produces a range of Embellishing Waxes for use in open-grained woods and tight-grained woods with texture added to them. They are not a surface finish.

There are nine colours available: Gold, Silver, Bronze, Black, White, Electric Blue, Electric Green, Electric Purple and Hot Pink.

Use them in conjunction with the Intrinsic Colour Collection for stunning results.

There’s no need to wait for a gilt cream to dry overnight – this product dries quickly when buffed. We recommend that these waxes be overcoated with Hampshire Sheen Microcrystalline Wax for extra protection. Supplied in a 60g (2.02oz) aluminium screw top tin.
