Application of Fiddes Hard Wax Oil
Ensure that the surface is clean, dry and free from any old finishes before applying Fiddes Hard Wax Oil. Where necessary strip off previously finishes with a paint stripper and then wipe over with white spirit to remove any greased in the timber.
Fill in any small holes, chips or cracks with our wax filler stick in the most suitable colour.
Sand the wood with a fine grade of sanding paper and then dust
Stir the Fiddes wax oil thoroughly before use and use a good quality soft bristle brush to apply in a well ventilated room. Apply even amounts of oil in the direction of the wood grain where possible and remove any excess oil immediately with a clean cotton cloth if necessary. We recommend the minimum of two thin coats but more softer woods you can apply more.
We recommend to leave to dry for the minimum of six hours between each coat of oil. Before each additional coat, very lightly sand with very fine sanding paper as this will give you a smoother finish. Vacuum and dust before the next coat of oil to stop any contamination.
When you are happy with the final results leave over night to thoroughly dry and then lightly buff to a nice sheen.
As with all finishes, we always recommend to do a small test area first to ensure you are happy with the finish and results. Ensure you follow the manufacturer’s instructions at all times.
For an extra nice sheen try waxing with Fiddes mellow wax, this works particularly well on furniture.
A single application will cover approximately 20-24 square meters per litre, depending on how dry your timber is and if it is a softwood or hard wood. It will saturate into softwood more so may require further coats.
