Fiddes offer a selection of different types of flake and powdered Shellac mixed to traditional, proven formulations that are suitable for both brush and rubber application.

Fiddes Transparent Polish has excellent self levelling properties, retaining a slight amber tint once applied. Transparent Polish is can also be used as a sealer on denser hardwoods, or as a binder when mixed with Fiddes Spirit or Pigments Powders.

Fiddes Garnet Polish affords a distinctive depth of colour, typical of this variety of flake shellac. Richer & darker in appearance than both Button, and Heavy French Polish, It provides an ideal base colour from which to build an authentic Jacobean finish, particularly on oak wood.

Fiddes Button Polish is manufactured from fine, unbleached Shellac flake. Rich and golden in appearance, Button Polish is traditionally used when a slightly warmer appearance is required. A firm favourite with Antique restorers and Cabinet Makers.
