[quote]If you have time I’d appreciate your advice on the best way to prepare waxed pine furniture for finishing in eggshell or similar - you mention Krudcutter - which type would you use and how to clean up ?
Would you follow with Zinsser BIN?
Krudkutter Original is really good for stripping wax. I used to happily apply Liberon Wax Remover and similar potions with wire wool, and scrub away, then wipe off with rags. Some you have to neutralise and others not. They did the job.
[*]Wear gloves just in case - the KK is citrus based, but the coating you remove may have something in it that doesn’t agree with your bare hands.
[*]Apply KK Original liberally with a cotton rag.
[*] Leave for a few minutes, I wouldn’t let it dry out.
[*] Scrub off the wax with a rough kitchen scourer. Use a dry rag to remove the inevitable scuzz.
[*] Repeat till clean, but I have found it is very effective.
That’s it for me. This is the full Krudkutter Original Data Sheet.
Sand when the wood has dried out, and paint.
And if you like the Annie Sloan chalk paint and wax look, there is no need to strip wax for painting.
