This Ultimate Wax BUFFING Brush is used to create a uniformed sheen- not for applying wax!
WHEN IT COMES TO BUFFING: after you have applied your wax and removed the residual and the wax feels dry where you can glide the top of your hand across (it still may feel cool or a slight moist though!) ....... ....the final part of your project MAY BE to buff the surface to achieve your desired sheen. Annie Sloan herself, recommends waiting 24 hours after removing your excess wax to buff- so you do not remove too much wax if just freshly applied. The more you buff- the higher the sheen. And again- buffing is not necessary.
Your final buffing strokes should be in the same direction of your paint strokes and - that should be the same as the direction of the wood grain originally. You can experiment with buffing strokes. During the final buffing phase- buff from one side, all the way to the opposite side (end to end.) I know this may sound strange, but over darker colors sometimes I can see a difference. I can only use the example of when you vacuum a carpet that has a high pile... think shag carpeting. You know how you can see that zig-zag pattern from laying the pile in different directions because of the the back and forth of the vacuum....that is similar.
The brush is a comfortable size to hold, and being that it is an oval shape- it fits nicely and comfortably in the palm of your hand without straining your muscles in your thumb. There is also a strap across the top to slide your hand under.
This brush is 7.5 inches long X 2.75 inches wide in the center. The height when sitting flat is about 1.75 inches.
Ideal for buffing the furniture you waxed using your Ultimate Wax Brush.
Everyone who uses this buffing brush during our class - always leaves with one.
