A rich white paste wax which will give a dramatic grained finish to all open grain timbers particularly oak or ash. It may be applied to bare wood but for a really dramatic effect stain the wood first. Before applying the wax, first open the grain using a bronze hand or similar brush, apply the paste with a pad of 0000 steel wool and fill the grain completely. After a few minutes, finish by waxing with clear Black Bison. This will remove any excess liming wax and impart a deep shine when buffed.

great resultsI have used this liming wax for mahogany furniture and teak tables and chairs (exterior) with good results. As with everything it's all in the preparation and if you do exactly as instructed you will be very pleased with your results. You do need to make sure wood is well sanded and then drag a wire brush along the grain of the wood (press hard to open up the grain). Apply the wax with 00 wire wool in the direction of the grain making sure that the grooves are filled. Wipe off excess across the grain and let it dry before finishing with the clear liberon sealing wax. If you want a more bleached effect just add another coat. Its' great and looks professional. I am just about to do a staircase which is a horrible varnished modern mahogany at the moment.

Test FirstIt certainly gives an effect, just not what I'd call a limed finish effect! Make sure you test first on a bit of scrap because there's every chance you won't like the look.
