Choose a varnish of the desired color, depending on color wooden products. Mixing different components of polishing, you can achieve the tone from the classic reddish-brown (shellac and alcohol 1:4) to colorless (bleached shellac and alcohol 1:5).
The working fluid can be prepared independently. For this pre-dissolve the purified shellac in alcohol. Add to the mixture a small amount of benzene, shake the solution and leave for a day.
Discard supernatant, being careful not to shake the muddy sediment. Working, filter the mixture through a funnel and sheet of filter paper – varnish finish.
Start polishing lacquered products special peso-wax composition. It is also possible to make at home: store pumice powder sift through a sieve of silk fabric, then add in melted natural wax and mix vigorously.
Fold half cut of cloth fabric and start to Polish the varnish, regularly wetting the cloth in the resulting abrasive composition. Do light circular motion until all the product does not become absolutely smooth.
Rinse the pumice with clean water and sponge and wipe with a dry cloth. Before polishing warm up the entire polished surface, rubbed it with a cloth.
Make a tampon for polishing. One shell should be of coarse linen, the other of soft flannel. Inside lay a fat-free wad of wool or cotton. Fixture size choose individually, depending on the area of the product.
Expand the tampon pour into his soft filler varnish and re-roll woven shell. When wool or cotton wool impregnated polishing composition, drag swab sample from planed boards. The degree of saturation of the cloth with the varnish best if you lay down smooth, thin and quick-drying strokes. They do not in any case should not be spread!
Apply on the outer working side of the swab a little vaseline or vegetable oil – then it would be better to slide and not stick.
Proceed to the polishing varnish. In the first stage, make small circular movements from left to right. Then move the swab to the next station without taking your hand and begin polishing the furniture in the opposite direction. When processing the edges stretch a tampon according to wavy, in a straight line.
Let the first layer of varnish dry completely. At a temperature of from 18 to 20 degrees this can happen in about 3-6 hours. When the surface is ready to re-processing, re-apply varnish. Make a quick movement – zigzag, longitudinal, transverse, - capturing large areas.
Dry the surface of furniture for 6-12 hours, then spend the final polishing of the varnish. Per 1 m2 of wood you'll need about 300-400 g shellachnoj varnish.
Polishing lacquered furniture carefully, not pushing hard on the surface. Always check the fullness of the working of the pad with varnish and, if necessary, refill it. To avoid damaging the lacquer film, do not exert extra pressure while processing. A tampon should not slumped on the product, and the like onto it easy sliding movements.
