Hampshire Sheen Finishing Wax. 4 oz. High Gloss:
Hampshire Sheen High Gloss wax brings a higher shine to your decorative woodwork than Hampshire Sheen Original. It is just as tough, but with an additional ‘Pow’ of shine that suits some lathe projects. With a higher quantity of carnauba and microcrystalline waxes, this version is stiffer than Original but is just as easy to apply. This is already many UK turner’s ‘go-to’ finish for their turned items.
1: Turn your piece and then sand it immaculately down to your preferred grit.
2: Apply a single coat of sanding sealer.
3: Cut this back with a fine Nyweb pad (or, if you really have to, 0000 wire wool).
4: Apply Hampshire Sheen with the lathe at a medium speed and evenly cover the piece, making sure there are no lines running around it.
4a: Subsequent thin coats can be applied with the lathe running faster.
5: Allow the finish to dry a few seconds before lightly buffing to a luster with the lathe at a medium to fast speed.
