Button Polish is suitable for mahogany, dark oak, walnut and rosewood and enhances the appearance of wood. Button polish should be applied in the same way as other French polishes giving a harder film of polish with a more orange coloured finish. Often used to duplicate an antique finish or similar appearance, because its dark colour will obscure the colour and grain pattern of light woods. Called button polish because it is made from shellac in the shape of buttons. ONLY FOR SALE TO THE UK MAINLAND.
