    Comments about Renaissance Wax :

    Renaissance Wax works beyond expectations in polishing wood items that I turn on my lathe. It creates a luster finish that makes my wood look like it was done by a professional. It is a product that is not messy and easy to use.

    • Does Not Damage Finish

    Cons

    • Expensive

    Best Uses

    • Antique Furniture

    Comments about Renaissance Wax :

    This is probably the best available wax to apply on antique furniture - I will not damage the finish of the piece, will not darken it (as some oils do) and will preserve its patina

    BEST WAX ON THE PLANET

    • Shine
    • Versitality

    Cons

    Best Uses

    • All hard surfaces

    Comments about Renaissance Wax :

    I make exotic wood boxes as gifts for for family and friends. Some take many weeks to complete. The last thing I do to my pieces is to give them a coat of Renaissance Wax. It pulls together final finishes like nothing else and resists fingerprints. Pieces finished this way are so slick thats it's easy to loose your grip. I typically sand to 4000 grit before applying several coats of Tung oil. What the Ren. Wax does to this finish is remarkable, but it works equally well on other finishes. It is particularly useful on the sliding wooden drawer runners in my boxes, making them glide like Clark Grizwauld's sled in Christmas Vacation. Sorry. This is my first ever review, but I think so highly of Renaissance Wax that I had to share. My 2nd Grade teacher would be so proud.

    A Fantastic All-Around Wax

    By  Jeff Herman

    from Rhode Island

    About Me Professional

    Pros

    • Easy to apply

    Cons

    • None

    Best Uses

    • Detailed Work
    • Large Areas
    • Small Areas

    Comments about Renaissance Wax :

    I'm a professional silver restoration/conservation specialist who's been using Renaissance wax for 26 years. I use it to protect silver from tarnishing, on coffee, teapot handles, and ivory to seal out moisture and protect from silver polish, on my tools to prevent rust, even on my bicycle. A little goes a long way. The only downside is the smell, but this dissipates after about 24 hours from application. A small price to pay for a great product used by museums around the world.

    versatile stuff

    Pros

    Cons

    Best Uses

    Comments about Renaissance Wax :

    Among all the other things this stuff is good for, it is great as a protective coat on oil paintings and even on delicate watercolors and ink drawings.....it makes the paper impervious to water and grime, but does not visibly change the look of the paper. Wonderful for protecting old documents and photos too. One caveat on oil paintings: make sure the paint has cured for 6 months or so before applying wax. If the painting is subjected to a smokey/grimey environment after being waxed, simply re-wax with Renaissance and it comes bright and clean---and it equalizes the sheen of different paint areas.

    Excellent Product

    By  AK

    from Sierra Mtns

    About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer

    Pros

    • Easy to apply
    • Refined acid free wax
    • Small amount required

    Cons

    • Expensive
    • Odor-dissapates in a day

    Best Uses

    • Protection restoration
    • Wood Leather Metal

    Comments about Renaissance Wax :

    I use it on my wood-lathed items over oil, poly or acrylic finishes. It leaves a nice feel after it hardens completely, no 'drag' like other waxes. Protects against fingerprints better than other waxes IMHO and is completely clear unlike some other waxes.
