Sand the surface to 600 grit, preferably higher. Squeeze a small drop on a clean, soft lint free cloth. Apply to turnings with the lathe off for even distribution, then with the lathe on, move back and forth over the turning using moderate pressure. Warmth from the friction will cause a glass like finish to appear in seconds. Comes in a squeeze bottle to make an easy no-mess application. Comes in a 6 oz. bottle.
