Liming wax is a smooth white paste wax formulation which produces a white grained look on bare or stained wood. Classic Liming is often used in combination with other finishing techniques to achieve a white wash look, pickled affect, or is used to affect a pastel finish with some stains.
Classic Liming wax is particularly effective on Oak and other open grained woods, where it can cling and lie deep in the open pores of the grain, and then shadow through a wax clear coat. Apply directly onto wood, working the wax well into the grain. Allow to go tacky then buff with a soft cloth to achieve a gloss finish. Two hundred years ago this liming method was used to lighten the dark wood panels in various mansions of the day. Liming wax is the predecessor of the “pickling method” used today.
Liming produces a distinctive effect, which is traditionally associated with oak furniture. The finish is created by filling deep pours in open grain timber with the liming wax. Even when dry, the white liming wax contrasts with the darker wood, emphasizing the grain pattern. Liming wax can be applied direct to bare wood and onto sealed surfaces. Liming Wax Brochure
