I used a really light touch in the end and only super thin layers with one to two drops of water for each dab of wax. If two drops I would swirl in the wax and first drop, and if the wax was still a bit cloudy and not as smooth as I'd like I would add another drop of water and work that in until clear to the eye and smooth to the touch.
Any secrets to be learned?
as far as i can see this is a really good outcome for the first try!!! really good job!!
some little tips!! first of all you ll need a better cloth!! try a microfiber cotton cloth(selvit or sunglasses cloth) !! Mr Rider recommends an old tie too!! Generally a cloth with smouth and soft surface
keep puttuing drops of water till you see the surface going clear and smouth!!Blow while you are doing circles(for me it is helping a lot)!!
try the last buff with a tiny amount of cream polish(2-3 pinheads for the entire toe)!! cream has a lot les solvents than paste(wax) polish so it wont desolve previous layers!!
finally as you go with the layers put less and les presure after its coate!! hope this ll help you
