Answer: sand the wood, dust, apply an undercoat, finish with a patina then a wax

Hello Jean-Pierre, I advise you to sand all the wood of your Louis XIV style armchair in order to remove the existing varnish. You will then sand it using a medium grain sandpaper then fine. You will then dust it and apply an undercoat. Finally, carefully apply a black patina and then a black wax finish for an authentic, non-shiny finish! Find out all the editorial questions
