Intensive wax remover RADIKAL ABWACHSER
It is a professionally focused product based on pure non-corrosive solvents.
Ready to use, it is ideal for cleaning all wooden surfaces. With speed and absolute effectiveness it attacks the old layers of wax, freeing the wood from dirt and encrustations without affecting the underlying paints. In the decoration process it is used to remove any residues of water damage and to antiquate the gilding leaf in a refined, progressive and natural way.
- Also great for cleaning brushes.
- Also available in spray.

Application tips:
For antiquing the gilded leaf surfaces, rub a cotton swab soaked in the product until the desired effect is obtained. For intensive cleaning, the product can be used with a cloth or steel wool depending on the tenacity of the layers to be removed

The choice of shabby style: our wood decoration products are extremely versatile and allow you to create an infinite range of decorative options for wood. We have chosen to imprint the catalogue on the shabby style because it is much appreciated and gives the opportunity to explore a long and versatile process in all its phases.

Expert advice: to create a particular decoration for the first time, you need an expert guide, and when it comes to decorating wood, we are the experts! The products are accompanied by technical specifications, useful advice and valuable information. Here are some examples of our application tips:
1. Add colors drop by drop to the coloring product to avoid overly intense shades. Always perform a preliminary test to verify the final effect.
2. Add the chalk to the Shabby Provencale paint little by little, possibly by making it drop through a sieve, until the desired consistency is obtained.
3. Apply in thin layers and polish with a woolen cloth. To increase the antique effect on carved surfaces and give more depth to the moldings, carefully apply into the cavities with the help of a brush.

Customization with Borma Color System: Borma Color System is the Borma service that allows you to obtain decoration products in the exact color you need. The sample color or custom tinting service allows you to work only on the surface where the original color is missing, without having to repaint the entire surface.
