UBeaut SHELLAWAX CREAM
Before you use SHELLAWAX CREAM it is advisable to put in some fine preparation work with abrasive paper. The finer you sand the better your finish will be. Otherwise you are wasting your time and polish . For most work the best results are obtained when sanding is carried through to 1200 grit or more. At worst you should sand to at least 400 grit for a reasonable result.
SHELLAWAX CREAM is not a grain filling finish. It is not like polyurethane or other surface finishes where you can slap on a couple of coats and end up with the sanding marks filled. Quite the contrary. This is a finish that is in the timber as much as it is on the timber. It is basically unlike any other finish you have ever used before. It looks like a full blown French polish on a grand piano and brings out lights and grain in the timber that you would never have known were there.
It feels like you are touching the timber, but now the timber has an almost sensual feel to it, like it has become silk. It can add a whole new dimension to a turned item in a matter of seconds. Sounds too good to be true, but it is.
