For over four generations, Fiddes has been dedicated to blending the finest natural Shellac to create a renowned range of French Polishes that have gained international recognition in the fine woodworking and antique restoration industry. Our commitment to quality has made our French Polishes a trusted choice among professionals.

Fiddes offers a diverse selection of flake and powdered Shellac, expertly mixed according to traditional and proven formulations suitable for both brush and rubber application. We understand the importance of providing options that cater to different preferences and requirements.

In addition to our traditional French Polishes, we have also developed a range of “Sprayable” Shellac Polishes for those who prefer this application method. These sprayable options provide the same exceptional quality and finish that Fiddes is known for.

One of our standout products is the Fiddes Transparent Polish, which boasts excellent self-leveling properties, resulting in a flawless surface. Once applied, it retains a subtle amber tint, adding warmth and character to the wood. The Transparent Polish can also be used as a sealer on denser hardwoods or as a binder when mixed with Fiddes Spirit or Pigment Powders, offering versatility and creative possibilities.

Discover the timeless elegance and superior craftsmanship that Fiddes French Polishes bring to your fine woodworking and antique restoration projects. Trust in our heritage and experience to achieve impeccable results.



Dry Time: Allow 20-30 minutes for the Transparent Polish to dry.

Coverage: The polish will cover approximately 8 square meters per liter, depending on the substrate and application method.

Thinners: Use Finishing Spirit or Methylated Spirits as thinners for the polish.

Coats: Apply two coats on hardwood surfaces and a maximum of three coats on softwood or more porous timber.

Recommended for Use On: Fiddes Transparent Polish is suitable for application on fine furniture, doors, floors, cabinet work, and paneling. It can also be used as a sealer on denser hardwoods or as a binder when mixed with Fiddes Spirit or Pigments Powders.

Application: You can apply the Transparent Polish using a brush or rubber. Ensure the surface is clean and free from dust before application. Apply the polish evenly, following the direction of the wood grain. The polish has excellent self-leveling properties, which helps achieve a smooth finish. Allow the polish to dry between coats.

Note: It’s recommended to finish the application with a coat of Fiddes Supreme Wax Polish or Mellow Wax Polish to provide additional protection and enhance the natural beauty of the wood.
