FRENCH POLISHING



There is among many antiquarians quite an air of mystery about this traditional finishing skill. Natural shellac resin, a bit of alcohol, and a touch of finesse are the key ingredients to this zenith of finishes. The incomparable depth of a French Polish comes from the graceful padding of shellac layer upon layer for days upon days creating magnificent refraction of light. The entrancing shimmer and glow of a true French Polish is breathtaking. And there is no modern method that can achieve quite the same look.
