a lot of people found the old avatar quite disturbing.
I'm waiting for Ron Rider and DWFII to pitch in. They really know their stuff. They're true professionals, who see life through a haze of Saphir and Kiwi fumes. Anything they have to say easily trumps my amateur ramblings.
There's one thing I mentioned above that I'm standing by - it's underrated and doesn't get enough of a mention - it's the tiny bit of wax that's left on the felt (either side of the finger) after you do your swirling. Do make sure that you access this, by moving either your cloth or finger into a new position. Just this and warm breath will often take a mirror to the next level. Trying to pick a tiny bit of wax from the tin never seems to work as well. Maybe it's because the swirling warms and mixes the wax. To be honest, I really don't know why it works, it just does.
Remember: I'm a SF member trying to smarten up his act, not a shoe shine expert. These are simply my experiences. It works for me, with evidence as proof. My method is constantly updated and refined. Come back in a year and I'll probably have a slightly altered version of what I do.
