Liberon was established in 1912, selling wax finishes for the woodworking and furniture trade. They now specialise in the manufacture of quality restoration materials that we offer for sale and also use when restoring our antique furniture.
Liberon Wax Range
Liberon Black Bison wax comes in either a wax paste or liquid wax. This product is made from a select blend of waxes and comes with a wonderful scent. Not only will it improve the natural beauty of the timber but it will also add a protective layer to the wood. The liquid wax will offer the same benefits but will help to mask light marks and scratches. There is also a liquid wax with pure Turpentine available that offers a hard-wearing finish, perfect for internal wood around the home like doors, staircases and skirting boards.
Liberon Decorative waxes
The Home Colour Care range will offer something different as it creates a decorative metallic finish so ideal for more modern pieces of furniture. This wax creates a silky sheen with shimmering reflections in unique colours available. It also nourishes and protects the wood, whilst offering resistance to some stains.
Liberon Liming Wax is perfect when you are trying to create a white wash effect on Oak or pine. This white wax paste is used along with a liming brush to open the grain. This is ideal for modern timbers but can also look amazing on antique oak furniture.
We also offer special effects wax in either Black or Verdigris. The Black wax can be used to age wood, create a patina effect and also cover repairs in the wood.
