Soft Wax Wood Filler for scratches, dents, small holes & chips
The Soft Wax Repair Kit is a handy set of 4 x wax filler sticks (4cm each) of varying shades used for repairing scratches, small holes, dents & chips to all wooden surfaces.
The filler sticks can be used for quickly repairing damages to surfaces such as hard wood (solid wood), soft wood, veneer, laminate, melamine, paper foils and all other types of wood.
The product works by simply rubbing the wax stick into the damaged wood and then scraping off the excess with the applicator tool (provided). The kit is available in 3 different packs for repairing different shades of wood;
The Soft Wax Repair Kit can also be used for wooden flooring, furniture, motor homes, caravans, boats and wood used in all other enironments.
Used for repairing;
Scuffs & Scratches
Dents & Chips
The quantity of wax provided in each kit is typically enough to carry out many repairs and will often be sufficient to repair multiple pieces of furniture with light to moderate damage.
As the products in the kit are made from wax, if stored in a cool, dry place and kept in a sealed container they will last for many years.
Wood Scratch Repair
For this repair we have selected to use the Dark Soft Wax Repair Kit. From the kit, three wax sticks were selected; these were the sticks that resembled the various shades in the wood the most.
The way the wood is repaired, is by rubbing the lightest of the shades on first followed by the darker colour(s) to mimic the grain pattern and help the repair blend in better.
Using the lightest of the shades selected, rub the wax stick into the scratch so it starts to fill the scratch to about 80% full.
Most repairs will require 2 or more sticks to be rubbed into the scratch for a perfect repair, this helps replicate the grain of the wood.
Take the second stick (darker than the first) and rub it over the scratch. With this stick you aim to fill the rest of the scratch.
As you can see by this photo, when filling the wood, you don't aim to just keep the filler in the scratch. It spills out over the edges and needs to be scraped off.
Using the applicator supplied, scrape the wax off, scraping along the scratch lengthways. If you scraped the other way, it might pull some of the filler out.
This photo shows the scratch after it has been repaired.
If at this stage you weren't happy, just use the edge of the applicator to dig the wax out and start again.
You can also use the edge of the applicator to apply wax to specific areas rather than rubbing it in like we did in this guide.
The waxes in the kit are suited to use on all types of wood and are ideal for the repair of scratches, holes, dents and other minor damage to furniture. Simply pick the kit with the shades of wax that best match the colours of your item(s) to make quick, easy, professional standard repairs.
By rubbing the waxes in to the area of damage, it is filling the gap, gouge or hole left by the damage, and by using the different shades to mimic the colour and grain of the wood you are disguising the repair. Essentially the wax is replacing the wood from damaged area for a seamless repair.
For these problems, or for damage on areas that see a high degree of use, we would recommend the use of our Hard Wax Repair Kit. Soft waxes, as provided in this kit, would indeed fill the hole, but are designed for areas of low/infrequent use and do not provide the hard wearing, extremely durable repair that hard waxes do.
This kit fixes damages to all light shades of wood such as; Ash, Beech, Birch, Maple, Pine and other shades of light wood.
This kit fixes damages to all medium shades of wood such as; Oak, Teak and other similar shades.
This kit fixes damages to all dark shades of wood such as; Alder, Mahogany, Walnut & other darkend woods.
