How to use Fiddes Mellow Wax
- For best results, we recommend cleaning the surface using Priory Polish Reviver before use as this will give you the best results, as it will clean and add depth to the colour of your wood.
- Take a clean cotton cloth (Priory Polishes Fine Cotton Wax Buffing Cloth is ideal) or brush and apply in the direction of the wood grain where possible. To obtain a uniform colour, always wipe evenly, blending the Mellow Wax over the whole surface area by exerting a small degree of pressure when applying by hand. Take care to lightly remove any excess Mellow Wax immediately with a separate, clean absorbent cloth. Again following the direction of the grain pattern.
- Leave to dry for around 10 minutes, and buff to finish with a soft cloth.
- The application of additional coats will deepen the existing colour / shade and significantly enhance the resulting sheen level.
