Another fan for the Osmo stuff. I use the matt hardwax oil in preference to the satin as I prefer the matt finish. Howerver, if it's cut back with very worn 320g paper after each thin brush application, it will take a really nice wax finish on top which gives it a just a little lustre, whilst not being a full satin finish - Robsuperunknown":lphq3zjt said:Woodman2, Thank you! The oil used is Osmo-Polyx hardwax oil - Rapid. I apply this by hand with a cloth, it gives a lovely smooth soft finish and is a lot faster than brushing it on. I am not sure if it can be sprayed. The reason for the matt finish is it needed to match the clients Oak flooring, also Osmo matt. It's just 2 coats and nothing else is needed. I use Osmo products on all my hardwood furniture. It's a great product and its natural and eco friendly. I'm not a fan of spraying lacquer about.
I once tried a couple of thickish coats with the stuff as you would if varnishing. Mistake...biggy mistake. I can't remember for the life of me what the outcome was, but I do remember the job was a disaster and therein after thought it best to adhere to the instructions - Robsuperunknown":27tqre0z said:Yes I cut it back between coats, just a quick go over. Thin coats are essential.
Alna Teak Wax, which is a lovely, soft and easy to apply Scandinavian wax specially developed for teak. I bought a whole load of it in the 70's when I was at college but don't bother trying to get hold of any...it's not been made for the last 30 years :mrgreen: Any wax though will do the job...the other stuff I use is Fiddes from Ax which is a bit harder to put on and take off - RobCharlie Woody":24e8s2ty said:Rob
What wax do you use on the Osmo oil?
