Our best-selling Gloss Finishing Wax is a carefully designed combination of carnauba and microcrystalline waxes suspended in a low odour solvent to enable you to build up a super-tough glossy finish to turned work that is also fingerprint-resistant and Food & Toy Safe when cured.
It has a stiff texture and may appear’ crumbly’ in the tin at times (particularly in cold weather). This is perfectly normal due to the very high wax-to-solvent ratio. When used correctly, you need less of the product than you may think to achieve a fantastic quality finish.
Our Gloss Finishing Wax is the toughest and most long-lasting finish available and is a popular go-to finish for many turners. Supplied in a 130g (4.4oz) lacquered lever lid tin.
