SKU: Chestnut French Polish Categories: , , , ,

A high quality french polish with a very heavy concentration of shellac to give the traditional amber glow associated with fine furniture.

Confusingly, French Polish refers to a range of polishes (which would include Button Polish, White Polish, Garnet Polish etc) and also to a specific polish, French Polish.
Our French Polish is a traditional blend of solvent (methylated spirit) and a top quality unbleached shellac which is very similar to a Button Polish in colour.
Applied either to bare timber or over a Shellac Sanding Sealer it is built up in many layers which have been described as being the thickness of a cigarette paper!
French Polish gives the rich amber glow found on fine antique furniture and requires a very specific technique for application that is time consuming and laborious, but the final effect has to be seen to be believed and the satisfaction of achieving it is its own reward.
A French Polish finish is not very hard wearing and is recommended for items that are going to be cared for.
