3-4 hr

Methylated Spirit


Ensure the surface is clean, dry and bare, removing any previous finishes with Libéron Wax and Polish Remover or Libéron Fine Wood Stripper. If the wood is to be dyed or stained, this must be completed prior to the application of Libéron Easy French Polish. Sand with extra fine abrasive paper and remove any dust with a tack cloth.


Using a good quality lacquer brush or lint free cloth, apply a thin coat of Libéron Easy French Polish, working with the grain of the wood. Allow a drying time of 3 to 4 hours, then gently rub down using Libéron Ultrafine Steel Wool (0000) for a smooth finish. Remove any dust. Apply additional coats as required, following the instructions above. Three to four coats are usually sufficient to achieve a quality finish.


  • Best results are on small to medium size pieces. We recommend practicing on a small piece before applying to a larger surface.
  • For a higher gloss finish use Libéron Burnishing Cream once the last coat has hardened for 7 days.
  • French polishes are best applied in a warm, dust-free environment.
  • Important: Always test product on a spare surface or inconspicuous area for colour, compatibility and end result.
  • Remove as much of the product as possible from the tools after use. Do not dispose of residues and washing water/solvents in the sink, toilet, sewer, bin, etc., in order to avoid discharge into the environment.
