Using Briwax on Wood Carvings


Stacks Image 2410

Many Wood Carvers want to always use Briwax Clear on their carvings because they don’t want to obscure any of the grain. Of course we never condone always using Briwax Clear; however, we will point out to the carver that all wood is some shade of “Brown” - be it light brown, reddish brown, dark brown, golden brown or vanilla…wood is some shade of brown.

Briwax uses the natural preservation qualities of beeswax and an incorporated dye to tint and highlight the natural beauty of all woods! Using Clear Briwax will not bring out all the beauty of a Honduran Mahogany for instance. It is a naturally reddish wood and Briwax Antique Mahogany or Briwax Teak will really bring out the beauty of the wood and your carving.

This simple sign is made of bass wood (vanilla color). The sign was waxed with Briwax Dark Brown to give it a rich tone appearance.

Although it was carved a number of years ago, it still looks as good as new and actually will look better as it ages more.

Carved Stack of Books

Briwax is the only finish on the wood in this project. This stack of carved books was a project that was inspired by watching a group of children completely engaged in reading books. After carving, the pieces were sanded and finished with Rustic Pine Briwax. You an see that an extra amount of Briwax was used in the deeper carved “pages” area so that the wax would remain in the recessed areas. Then the books were joined together to make the stack. The completed stack received its final application of Briwax and a thorough buffing. Today, this stack of books resides in a private school’s library.

Supplied needed for this project:

  • Can of Briwax (your choice of color) - we used Rustic Pine
  • Soft cloth or Microfiber pad for Briwax application
  • Tampico Bristle Brush for buffing (optional)
  • Clean cloth for buffing
