Praise for Hampshire Sheen

A little tin that goes a long way and produces a lovely glossy finish. This wax provides an excellent finale to whatever item you are finishing and you really do only need to apply a very small amount at a time. Well worth the money.

I use wax finishes on a lot of projects, I recently purchased hampshire sheen and Yorkshire grit as a bundle after reading reviews and watching endless videos of people using it and am not happy with the finish the shine dulls off after a matter of minutes, even quicker if you touch the piece. I have noticed from videos and such that the wax in people’s tins looks nothing like the product I received and am wondering wether I received an older batch or a tin past it’s shelf life?? My wax is dark yellow in colour, really soft with a crystally texture on top ive seen vids of people using high gloss which looks lighter in colour and hard in texture. I’m not alone I’m this my friend is a woodturner too and we both bought the same bundle from yandles and have experimented with different techniques but get the same results.

Bought this package and I’m really enjoying mix and matching colours; I’ve coloured three pieces already to try it out and two out of the three are brilliant, the third was very ‘hippy’ and didn’t appeal to me at all. Nothing wrong with the product, just my taste in colour co-ordination. Highly recommended

I am a great user of waxes and have used another microcrystaline wax for 20yrs. Then I heard about Hampshire Sheen high gloss so tried it. More than satisfied with the results to date. Give a really durable coat which does not feel tacky together with a great high gloss finish. More than happy.

Have used Hampshire sheen high gloss on a few projects now and the results are fantastic, whether combined with Yorkshire grit or just sanding sealer, with this product, a little does go a long way

After watching Mr. Smiths video on sycamore pendants I decided to purchase the intrinsic colour set.
The video and leaflet were a good guide as this was the first time I had tried colouring.
The danish oil really brought out the colours.
The results were very rewarding.
Great product, thank you.

One of the best products on the market. It is simple to use and just does what it says it does: it gives you a high gloss finish which does not feel “plastic” in any way.
Not only that but it seems to last forever. My daughter and I both use it and a small tin has lasted easily a year. I bought a new, larger, tin recently in case we ran out. That was 3 months ago. We still have not run out.

I have tried various other types of finishes to produce a high gloss and find Hampshire Sheen high gloss to be the best so far. easy to apply and very economical. highly recommended. A++++

I purchased these when they first came out and they are certainly long lasting. The video is so useful as a point of reference and a guide for an alternative way of applying these colours than what I was used to. They’re very easy to blend and these shades complement one another perfectly.

Hi Martin. Received the sample pack of colours, well packaged, Thanks. Only tried three of them so far on a bowl I turned for the kids sweets. I found them easy to apply with the airbrush, and was pleasantly surprised, whenever I have used any colours or stains on my turnings in the past I’ve always found them too intense or penetrated to deeply, these intrinsic water base colours are more controllable, allowing suttle blending of colour and intensity. Also being water based it makes cleaning and changing colours much quicker and easier. great product. looking forward to trying more coloured projects soon. thanks, keep up the good work. Phill.

I have used Hampshire Sheen on some 300mm wide English Ash cabinet tops. A coat of Shellac sanding sealer was applied and then de-nibbed with fine wire wool. I put on a coat of Hampshire Sheen and left to dry for a few minutes and then buffed it using a bristle brush mounted in a drill. The finish is first class, a deep satin sheen is achieved which gets better with more coats. I will definitely be using Hampshire Sheen in the future

I have used it on a couple of handles I turned for carbide tools along with a few pens and a couple boxes. To date I been very pleased with the finish.  The handles are showing no sign of ware with the frequent use. I would say without hesitation this is a finish everyone needs in their shop.

Hampshire sheen is a nice product to use. It's easy to put on and buff to a nice sheen. It's not too shiny, gives a nice lustre and it's good value for money. And it is made locally here in the UK by a man looking for some way to finish his work off

I have used Hampshire sheen a couple of times (I am a weekend turner and a surgeon with an active practice), and like it a lot. The first time, I believe I used too much and the outcome was not as I hoped. The second time, I barely put a touch on the paper and that gave a much better result.

I used a little on a practice piece and it worked wonderfully and produced a beautiful finish. Very pleased with what I've seen so far. I'm working on some spinning tops and pendant necklaces for Christmas. I plan to use the Hampshire shine on all. Thanks again for you excellent customer service. I will be sure to give a shout out for your channel and the Hampshire shine where I can.

I used if off the lathe and was really surprised at the quality of the shine. I am going to use it on a couple of bowls today on the lathe. I will be purchasing more of the polish when I can afford it. Great product

I'm delighted with its ease of use and I got a great finish - not too shiny but just the right degree of sheen. As a result I intend to become a regular customer.

I had a go with Hampshire Sheen today and it is truly wonderful. I really enjoyed using it and the finish is sublime! Unfortunately, the day did not go to plan. I will be posting a video in the next few days about it all but the finish is the star of the show 🙂 I will definitely be buying more of it!
