COLOUR MATCHING

Pure Gold is a clear beeswax polish ideal for wooden furniture made of Ash, Beech, Maple, Light Oak and PineTo 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!

Complete Polishing Kit, amazing finishes every time

Truly amazing wax polishes. Every piece that I have restored using the complete polishing kit, has produced fantastic finishes every time and made my life much easier through knowing that I am using quality products made and used by professional restorers. As a young restorer using professional restorers products, I can truly say that these are amazing finishes which have helped me hugely. Thank you

Fabulous coverage

Purchased the kit with the three different shades and covered an old pine kitchen table using the antique gold first then the pure old over the top between buffing up. It has given the rather worn looking table a new lease of life and very impressed with the shine.

AMAZING

Quite simply the best wax product I've ever used, my 15 year old table now looks better than when I bought it. Amazing results, easy to apply and such care taken with the packaging.

Amazing product!

This is my 3rd purchase from the guys. This one was to wax and polish a very tired Victorian dressing table I bought at auction. Easy to use and gives a beautiful finish! In these days of online purchasing with poor customer service it is a joy to receive a great product, beautifully packaged with easy instructions and tips to get the best out of the product, plus the invitation to get advice from the experts if needed. And you get some free seeds for the garden. Love that you can return the jar for a refill with a substantial reduction for all us recyclers! Brilliant! Cannot recommend highly enough!

Fantastic product..!

Having ordered and received my starter kit several weeks ago I’ve finally got round to using it. I’d spent a few weekends stripping back and repairing an antique ladies chair in mahogany. Now for the waxing... I decided on the Rose Gold... what a joy, both in usage and the result. It’s brought the chair back to life. Thank you Gilboy’s..!

Outstanding!

Ordered my antique gold polishing kit... it arrived early and is just incredible. Beautifully packed, I love the little touches that have been added. The polish is the best I’ve ever used. I will definitely be using again and again! Thank you so much!

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.
