How To: Tips & Techniques
Preserve Traditional Beauty
A great way to maintain the beauty and traditional appearance of classic pieces is with a warm, hand-rubbed finish. Minwax® Antique Oil Finish, Tung Oil Finish and Paste Finishing Wax are all great choices for maintaining and preserving that natural charm.
New Protection for Classic Pieces
Old furniture needs new protection. Clean any piece you are rescuing with Minwax® Wood Cabinet Cleaner, then protect it by rubbing on a coat of Minwax® Paste Finishing Wax, Antique Oil, or Tung Oil.
A Thin Coat is Better
Always apply a thin coat of Minwax® Paste Finishing Wax. A thick coat will dry unevenly and give a blotchy appearance. A good trick is to place a small chunk of paste wax into a piece of cheesecloth and wrap it into a ball. The wax will seep through, keeping you from applying too thick of a coat.
