Additional information

Although French Polish is the general term for all types of Shellac Polish, it is also a product in its own right. Mylands range contains many blends of Shellac Polish which have been developed over the years to fulfil various different requirements – some of which are slightly modified products for a specific purpose.

French Polish

This is a rich, medium brown coloured polish which is commonly used on darker timbers such as walnut, oak and mahogany. French polish produces a warm, dark transparent coating which cannot be reproduced by modern synthetic lacquers.

Brushing French Polish

This is a French polish which has been modified by the addition of cellulose. It is used in conjunction with Mylands Wax to make a simple, professional looking finish.

Button Polish

This is similar to French Polish, but has a slightly warmer patina and gives a lighter colour on timbers such as oak.

Superfine White Polish

This is suitable for light coloured timbers, such as oak, beech, maple, ash and sycamore and gives a beautiful high gloss finish. It gives a softer finish than other polishes, so should not be used on table tops.


  • Intended for application by normal French polishing techniques.
  • May also be applied by brush or mop.

Clean up

Use Methylated Spirits.
