We have two types of wax filler repair sticks available here.
A soft wax filler is ideal for pin holes, small scratches, chips, dents and the flat parts of damaged edges. It can be used on natural wood and artificial surfaces. No specific heat source is needed for soft wax. Working between finger and thumb is normally sufficient to make the wax pliable and to blend colours.
Hard wax, as the name suggests is a hard and durable wax filler. It is designed for repairs to areas subject to more severe use, such as repairing edge damage and flooring. It is also suited to filling larger holes and repairing more significant surface damage. It is normally applied and blended with a gas or electric heat iron.
Guidance notes are also included with every order. We are also happy to try and answer any questions.
Colours can be blended to achieve a closer match.

A very general guide on how to use softwax sticks.
- Remove loose material from the damaged area. Score the surface area to improve adhesion of the filler.
- Use a spatula or similar tool to fill the damaged area with the soft wax until it is flat, applying gentle pressure. The repaired area can be matched to the colour of the background by applying different shades one on top of the other.
- If required the level of sheen can be matched by spraying on several thin layers of varnish.
- The stick can also be rubbed into thin scratches like a crayon.
