Most of the time, people are looking for a sheen for their furniture. Recently, we have had several people ask us how to decrease the sheen on their furniture! Decreasing the sheen has a very easy solution . . . simple apply Briwax in the color of choice and don’t buff. As we’ve said previously, you’ll know when Briwax is dry because it turns dull.
Even if you decide not to buff out Briwax, it is still important to apply the wax in light applications.
Remember, even after you buff your Briwax finish, a wax finish will always be a softer sheen than using a poly or plastic finish.
