How to use Briwax Original Natural Wax Polish.

Ensure the surface is clean, dry and dust free before use.

On previously finished surfaces.

  1. On previously finished surfaces, we recommend to use Priory Polish Reviver with very fine Wire Wool. This will remove the dirt and grease, ready for waxing and will also give you the best sheen whilst adding to the depth of the colour and finish.
  2. Apply the Briwax using a lint free cloth or very fine 0000 Steel Wool, working in the direction of the grain of the wood.
  3. Leave to dry and then buff using a clean soft cloth.
  4. Several applications can be added to improve the sheen and depth of colour.

On bare / unfinished wood.

  1. Before use, ensure the surface has been stained to the desired colour.
  2. We would then recommend sealing the surface with Briwax Sanding Sealer, this will improve the overall finish.
  3. Once the sanding sealer is dry, lightly wire wool over using very fine 0000 steel wool to flatten and smooth the finish.
  4. Apply the Briwax using a lint free cloth or very fine 0000 Steel Wool, working in the direction of the grain of the wood.
  5. Leave to dry and then buff using a clean soft cloth.
  6. Several applications can be added to improve the sheen and depth of colour.

Questions and Answers

What is the best way of applying Briwax?

The best way to apply Briwax will depend on whether your wood has an existing finish or not. If you have an existing finish like a French polished finish on an antique furniture piece, then it is always best to clean the surface first using a polish reviver. This will remove any dirt and grime and add a nice sheen to the piece. You can then apply the Briwax furniture wax polish using a lint free cloth. Apply in the direction of the grain in thin coats. Once dry (after around 5 minutes) buff up to a nice sheen. On bare wood, you can stain and seal the wood first using a shellac sealer (but this is optional) Apply the Briwax using a lint free cloth in the direction of the grain. Again leave to dry and buff up to a nice sheen. You can add several thin layers of wood wax and buff between coats to enhance the sheen and colour of your finish.

Is Briwax waterproof?

No, this wood wax is not waterproof. It will add some slight water resistance but for a waterproof finish, you would be better to look at a hard wax oil finish

Can you use Briwax on old pine?

Yes, this wood wax is ideal for Pine wood. Briwax rustic pine, is a really nice shade to use as it adds an antique feel and colour to your wood. Briwax old pine wax will not only enhance the appearance of the wood but it also helps to highlight the grain to produce a lovely honey colour. This can also be used on antique pine furniture, scaffold boards, beams and much more. You can use any of the other colours in the range if you want to change the shade of your wood and we have all 9 different tinted variations on offer. 

Can you varnish over Briwax?

No it is not possible to varnish over this or any other wax, as the wood wax will stop the varnish from keying to the wood correctly. You would need to clean away any old wax, back to the bare wood before applying a varnish finish

Can I use Briwax over danish oil?

Yes you can apply this on top of a danish oil as long as the danish oil is fully dry and cured correctly. Try to stick to a close colour to your timber shade as possible, for example the best Briwax polish for pine furniture would be the rustic pine shade. 

How much will a tin of Briwax – wax polish clear 400g cover?

A 400 ml tin of Briwax clear wax will cover approximately 6 sq Metre with one coat. This will depend on how porous your wood is, the type of wood that you are applying it to and if it already has an existing finish. If it already has an existing finish then it will go a lot further. Briwax clear polish will usually do a full project like a full piece of furniture or table with 2 – 3 coats. 

My local Briwax polish stockists have closed, Can you help?

Yes, Priory polishes is a Briwax stockist and we ship around the UK on a daily basis direct to your home. We offer all Briwax colours in 400ml tins and free delivery over £20. We also can advise on the most suitable shade and finish for your project, so feel free to email for any advice or information. 

Is Briwax Clear Finish suitable for a kitchen worktop?

Briwax is more for use on interior furniture or wood that will not get wet. It is not suitable for worktops as it is not water or heat resistant. For this it would be better to use a hard wax oil or Osmo Top Oil is a superb alternative. 

What is the best shade to use on Oak furniture?

This wood wax comes in many different shades and the most suitable will depend on the shade you want your Oak to be. The colour antique brown can offer a golden oak wax shade ideal for the lighter tones. Briwax also offers mid brown to dark oak shades like Jacobean or Tudor oak. The colour choice will really depend on your taste and if you are trying to get a similar shade to the existing colour on your oak furniture. 

Will Briwax remove white marks?

This will depend on the white marks and how they have been caused. If the white marks are under a french polished finish, then this will probably not work. For this try using Liberon ring remover. If it is on a previously waxed wood then it may work by re-coating the area using the same wax tone. Sometimes, you will need to apply the Briwax using 0000 steel wool to work it into the wood and mark. Always test a small area first to ensure compatibility. 

How long does Briwax take to dry?

This wood wax can take as little as 5 minutes to dry if applied thinly. We always recommend to apply thin coats and leave for around 5 minutes and then buff up. Repeat the process until you have got your desired sheen. This is far better than applying one thick coat, as this will take longer to dry and be very difficult to buff off the excess. Also thick coats can lead to patchy finishes. 

Can Briwax be used on painted furniture?

Yes, this can be used on most painted finishes as long as the paint is fully dry and cured. We have used this before on top of a chalk paint finish but I would always test a small area first to ensure compatibility. If you are unsure, we do offer Annie Sloan chalk paint wax that can be used on chalk paint finishes.

  1. B'

    Briwax ‘Tudor Oak’

    We spent ages trying to decide on a colour to use on our pine scaffolding boards. We settled on a Medium Brown colour in the end and we are really pleased with the colour. Gives them the ‘oak Effect’ that we was after. Not dark, and not orange/yellow or red in tone. Very happy. Leaves a lovely smooth finish too.
