Rustins French Polish is made from flake shellac dissolved in alcohol.
Suitable for French polishing all dark and light coloured woods, when a light to medium brown tone is required. Also suitable for sealing wood before waxing.
When applied correctly, it will produce a high gloss finish. Alcohol evaporates rapidly leaving a film of shellac on the surface of the timber.
Wood should be clean and smooth. If grain is open, fill with Rustins Grainfiller. Furniture that is to be renovated should be cleaned with White Spirit and fine wire wool to ensure
that it is free from grease and wax.
Apply as many coats as required to build a sufficient layer of shellac.
For sealing wood before waxing, apply 2 liberal coats.
