Liberon Black Polish is a black-stained, high quality French Polish that is suitable for use in the ebonising wood. It is suitable for new wood and restoration work on antique furniture. It produces an opaque, jet black finish and is made using Shellac. Liberon Black Polish can be applied with a French Polishing mop or with a rubber in accordance with traditional French Polishing techniques and helps to stop the grain of the wood showing through.
How to use Liberon Black Polish
For a full and comprehensive guide to French Polishing please see our article here.
French Polishes are best applied in a warm, clean, dry, dust-free environment.
Liberon Black Polish can be applied with a French Polishing brush or with a rubber. Several coats of the ebonizing polish should be applied to achieve the desired finish. We usually recommend a minimum of three coats but could be many more for the desired finish.
Always test a small area before starting any project to ensure you are happy with the colour and always follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
For best results always finish with a good quality Wax as this will further enhance the finish and add a layer of protection to your furniture.
