Highly Experienced French Polishers in Kensington

Do you want to bring an antique table back to its former glory? Or does your handrail look old and unpolished?

French polishing is one of the oldest wood finishing techniques and remains one of the most popular. Many people mistakenly think it is a material, when it’s actually a process.

This technique entails applying thin layers of shellac dissolved in denatured alcohol using a rubbing motion, and can be a highly laborious technique, but the results are definitely worth it. French Polishing gives wood a high gloss shine, rich colour and dazzling chatoyancy.

Softer than modern varnishes and lacquers, it is much easier to correct any mistakes made with this type of polish, making it much more forgiving.
