We try to find you some very special products which we think you will like - this time we have even surprised ourselves with this one - how clever is this? A tough high performance acrylic varnish that produces a surface that feels like a traditional soft wax polish, beautifully silky to the touch. Not only that, available in a range of colours, it has a high resistance to heat and moisture and can be used on all sorts of timber projects inside and outside the home. When we tried it on newly sanded pine not only did it produce a wonderful silky touch but the clear version had so little influence on the colour you hardly knew it was there until you stroked it - you won't appreciate how good it is until you try it. Try mixing it with emulsion paint and use it as a colour wash for some great effects.

Brilliant stuffTook a punt on the satin finish version as I needed something tough for some pine shelves and as usual was totally unimpressed with the "selection" on offer in the sheds. Really glad I did. Application - easy as pie - even on top of unfixed fibre reactive dye, which smudges and halos if you so much as look at it funny, this stuff went on a charm. The instructions advise applying sparingly, which I did. Simply poured a drop on each workpiece and worked in with a kitchen sponge, then laid up with a fine synthetic brush (although tbh I don't think the laying up actually provided any benefit as I'm pretty sure I got distracted and forgot to do a couple and I can't tell them apart). De-nibbed, applied second coat, final rub down with a fine finishing pad, job done. Clean up - piece of cake. The quality of the finished result far exceeds of the amount of effort it took, which was essentially zero, and the "wax like finish" claim they make for it is legitimate. Very silky to the touch. As with any water-borne finish, definitely raise the grain and sand back first for best results.

MrDoesn't bring out the wood colours like old fashioned polyurethane and didn't seem any different to other acrylic varnishes
