Ensure the surface is clean, dry and free from any previous finishing materials.


Wipe onto the surface with a cloth or brush and allow to dry for 2 to 3 minutes before removing as much or as little of the excess as you wish with a clean lint-free cloth or Libéron Ultrafine Steel Wool (grade 0000). To use the wax as a coloured finish on bare wood, work a thin coat into the wood with Libéron Ultrafine Steel Wool (grade 0000), allow to become touch dry and buff. To remove large areas of Special Effect Wax, use Libéron Black Bison Paste Wax in Neutral and buff. For a water resistant finish, use Libéron Finishing Oil applied with a lint-free cloth or Libéron Ultrafine Steel Wool (grade 0000).


  • Try Libéron Special Effects Waxes in conjunction with the Libéron Gilt Cream for an even wider selection of effects.
