COLOUR MATCHING

Pure Gold is a clear beeswax polish ideal for use on Ash, Beech, Maple, Light Oak and Pine. To restore the colour of sun-bleached woods we recommend using Rose Gold or Antique Gold* (see note below)

Rose Gold is a medium shade beeswax polish specially formulated for use on Rosewood, Light Mahogany, Cherry, and Honey Oak furniture or similar coloured woods. 

Antique Gold is a dark beeswax polish designed for use on dark and antique woods such as Antique Oak, Mahogany, Walnut, Elm or similar dark coloured woods. 

 

*SUN-BLEACHING RESTORATION NOTE

The restoration of sun-bleached areas can be achieved with our Rose Gold or Antique Gold polish when it is applied to a surface where the protective finish is dry or in a deteriorated state.  Where the finish is in good order and sealing the surface, the dyes in our polishes will be prevented from being absorbed by the sun bleached area and it will have no effect. We would therefore recommend taking your furniture to a professional restorer who will remove the finish, revive the colour of the wood and then restore the finish once more. You might recommend our professional range of 1L tins of beeswax polishes while you're there!

Shine !

There use, or still is, an old saying that said " Polish so you can see your face in it ". Its a saying which it totally true of this product and with so little effort. I put the polish on one day then wipe off the next, and there's my shine ! I only need to apply the polish a couple of times a year. Well worth the money.

HOW TO POLISH WITH BEESWAX

  1. Use a soft cloth or very fine 0000 wire wool
  2. With gentle pressure spread the polish evenly over the surface in the direction of the grain, being careful not to over apply and avoid any upholstered areas. Once applied the surface area should look matt in appearance
  3. Allow the pure pine turpentine to completely evaporate and the wax to harden
  4. Use a soft buffing cloth to buff the wax to a deep and lustrous shine

Weekly furniture maintenance of removing dust can be done by simply using a slightly damp cloth and drying if needed with a clean dry cloth - beeswax polish will protect the surface for a very long time.

If you have a larger surface like the side of a chest of drawers or the top of a dining table apply the beeswax more evenly by dabbing the surface all over with small amounts of polish then wipe in the direction of the grain to spread the wax evenly.

*Secret Trade Tip:

For carved relief areas such as an antique coffer, you can also apply beeswax furniture polish with a standard shoe polish brush. It makes applying the beeswax much easier and allows the polish to get right into those dusty and hard to reach areas. Buff it the next day with the soft shoe brush.

Your purchase of Gilboy's Gold beeswax furniture polish is accompanied with a small box of sweet-pea seeds for you to plant and grow to provide more nectar for the amazing honey bees.
