FRENCH POLISHER LONDON
All Types Of Wood Restoration
French polishing is an old, XVII c technique of finishing the fine antique furniture.
Traditional French polishing consists of applying many thin coats of shellac dissolved in alcohol, using a cotton rubber lubricated with oil. It is a lengthy and repetitive process resulting in a very high gloss surface with deep colour.
This method by many people is considered to be the most beautiful way of wood finishing. And though French polished surfaces are more fragile than varnished, however they can be easily repaired.
