What is a Ceruse finish?
Accordingly, what is Cerusing wood?
Cerusing (sometimes called a “limed finish”) is a technique designed draw out the detail and character of the grain in a piece of wood. Modern cerusing techniques use liming wax or paint to accentuate the wood grain, usually on a piece with a dark stain.
Likewise, can you wax kitchen cabinets? Apply a soft paste wax in a thin layer to the cabinet surfaces with a soft cloth or brush. Using more than is needed to coat the surface will not result in a thicker coat of wax, you'll just spend more time buffing off the excess. Clean your cabinets and reapply wax about once a year.
Considering this, how do you seal Liming wax?
Yes, you can use a lacquer. I do and it works fine. I usually seal mine with spray sanding sealer then buff with a coat of oil after wards. You can also put oil on top of the wax, but the oil can lift the wax a little, I find the sealer first followed by oil to be more durable.
What is liming wax used for?
Liming Wax is specially formulated to protect your finishes and give them a pop of sophistication. Use it to create a beautiful white-washed finish or to lighten vibrant paint colors into lighter tones and pastels.
