Ensure the surface is dry, clean and free from any previous finishes as this works best on bare wood. Begin to open the grain with a Liberon Bronze Liming Brush (always working in the direction of the grain) and use a fair amount of pressure. The more open the grain, the better the results you will get. You may need to wire wool over the surface and sand off any excess stains.
Once the grain has been opened using the wire brush, Work the Liberon liming wax into the grain of the wood with fine Steel Wire Wool (0000) or a buffing cloth. You can add this in a circular motion to work it into the grain but always finish in the direction of the grain.
Wipe off the excess liming wax with a clean cloth, you first buff against the grain and then finish in the direction of the grain. Allow to dry for 3 – 5 minutes.
Remove the excess white haze using a cloth and then finish with a The Liberon Clear wax polish for a nice smooth, even finish.
Important: Always test a small area before use, to ensure you are happy with the results.
