How to Use the Wax Stick

Wax is used to fill any dents, scratches or cracks that may appear in your furniture. This is often caused as wood acclimatizes to your environment.

  1. Clean area where the dent is.
  2. With the wax stick rub vigorously over the affected area until the wax fills the dent.
  3. Gently Use a plastic card to remove excess wax.
  4. Using the cloth, rub briskly to remove any further excess wax.

How to Apply The Clear Oil-Wax Finish

If the protective clear coat is worn, dull, scratched or scuffed exposing the raw wood below, use the oil-wax finish to protect the area.

  1. Using the abrasive pad, lightly rub the area ensuring you are moving with the direction of the grain - this will ease any raised grain, flaking or slivers that may have occurred. Continue until the area feels smooth.
  2. Liberally apply the oil-wax finish to the damaged area.
  3. Using the cloth, rub the finish in a circular motion while removing any excess finish. Proceed to buff the area with the dry section of the cloth until there is no sheen left.
  4. Leave to dry for a minimum of 8 hours.
  5. Repeat steps 1-4 if you feel your piece needs 2 or 3 coats

How to Apply Touch Up Paint or Stain

  1. Using the brush attached to the bottle cap, apply the paint  evenly over the affected area.
  2. Using a dry section of the cloth, remove any excess paint.
  3. Leave to dry for a minimum of 8 hours.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 if you feel your piece needs 2 coats.
