Liberon Liming Wax is a white wax that is used to create a limed effect on oak and other hardwoods. Ensure the surface is clean, dry and free from any previous finishes. Open the grain with a Liberon Bronze Liming Brush. On softwoods such as pine, use a wire brush or coarse abrasive paper to score the timber. If you wish to enhance the effect, colour the wood with Liberon Palette Wood Dye before applying the liming wax. Liberon Palette Wood Dyes are available in a wide selection of wood shades. Work the liming wax into the grain of the wood with Liberon Ultra fine Steel Wool (0000) or a lint-free cotton cloth and wipe over with a clean cloth to remove excess. Allow to dry for 3 minutes. Remove the white haze using a cloth and Neutral Black Bison Paste Wax, or if a water-resistant finish is required, with Liberon Finishing Oil. Apply a second coat of Black Bison Wax and buff or add another coat of oil. The more coats of oil that are applied the greater the water resistance and the higher the shine. Always test product on a spare surface or inconspicuous area for colour, compatibility and end result.
