    Briwax Quick Dry Hard Wax Oil has all the appeal of the original solvent-based product but offers some distinct advantages to the shop and home user. It’s easy to apply and being a water-based emulsion, easy to clean up. It dries to touch in 30 minutes and can be recoated in only 2 hours, which means you can get three to four coats down in a day – and the end result is a luxurious, durable satin finish with a “waxy hand” that’s easy to maintain. 3 coats are recommended for normal use and 4 coats for high traffic or hard use areas. Caution: use of a sanding sealer prior to application is not recommended.

      Worked great but it does take a lot to stir up everything.

      I was warned about the water based version and did what a friend recommended. I opened it up, stirred up all the sediment on the bottom and took it my local paint store. They ran it twice in there shaker. After that it left a great finish. Dries much faster than the oil so in hot climates, it would be hard to work with. However, when applied correctly, it leaves a really nice silky smooth non yellowing finish.

      Not Impressed

      I think I can sum up this finish in two words—simply awful. There were yellow solids resembling cheese curd in the can that would not emulsify after minutes of stirring with a power stirrer. To clean out the solids, I ran the finish through a paint filter and then tested it on a sample of walnut. It came out nice-looking, but I'm not going through the hassle again—I'll stick with oil-based products.
