Hampshire Sheen Silver
This Hampshire Sheen silver wax is a variation of a traditional wax, but silver-coloured fabrics to add “highlights” to open-pored wood such as oak and ash. It leaves a beautifully nuanced “silver wash” effect on your workpiece. After turning, sanding and possibly staining, clean the grain with a preferably copper brush and rub the wax into the wood grain with a dry cloth in circular motions. With open-pore wood, you can also just smear it into the pores. Wait for the silver wax to dry slightly and then rub the wax that is not in the pores from the surface with a clean dry cloth. You can then finish it with Hampshire Sheen Microcrystalline or High Gloss for a brighter, harder finish. The carnauba and microcrystalline waxes are tough and abrasion-resistant. Once dry, the workpieces are resistant to fingers and splash water. For decorative wood only.
Silver-Wax is available in jars with lids of 60 g.
