A guide to wood wax and oil
Wood Wax - Wood wax is used primarily to protect the wood from absorbing moisture. It’s a finishing product, with a matt or high shine finish that’s ideal for worktops, furniture, floors and more. Waxes are suitable for household use due to their long lasting water and stain resistant properties. Unlike oils waxes do not penetrate the wood but rather sit atop it. You can apply wax over other finishes to produce a smooth, soft sheen but do not attempt to apply anything over wood wax. With different variations to choose from, including liquid, paste and solids you are sure to find exactly what you need at The Paint Shed. Browse through our host of colours and finishes today.
Wood Oil - Wood oils are both protective and decorative. They are easily applied over wood stains or on to bare wood and timber. While not as protective as wood wax or varnish, oil seeps into the wood replacing and replenishing the natural oils lost through age and exposure. Oils are therefore favoured by woodworkers, as they actively work to bring wood surfaces back to life. The contrasting sheen helps restore the original character of the wood. Oils are easy to apply and easy to maintain. By layering up on wood oil you are helping build a durable, healthy finish that significantly contributes to the warmth and ambiance of a home. If you are in the business of caring for wood furnishings and fittings, natural, low VOC wood oils are the perfect choice.
