A local expert French polisher has made me up a starter kit. [THANK YOU!] I’ve got to finish the skirting at either side of our fireplace, so it’s a nice small project to start with. Instructions are thus:

  • Apply wood sealer with brush – and allow to dry
  • Sand it down smooth
  • Make up polish, adding a little pre-made stain to get the right depth of colour.
  • Apply to wood
  • …then what?  I’ll let you know how it goes
