Yesterday I was in my usual mad dash to get this little cabinet finished ready to deliver today to the customer who’d commissioned it and I ran out of Frenchic clear wax.

I didn’t have time to drive all the way to Wotton to collect a new tin from the shop so hunted round my workshop at home hoping that there might be a half used tin somewhere.

No luck but I did find a discarded tin of a leading A N Other’s clear wax so in desperation decided to use that.

Wow what a difference to Frenchic wax, firstly the strong smell and then the effort to put it on and to rub it off and most noteworthy of all after about an hour I could feel a headache coming on even though I was in a well ventilated room.

I gave in and took tablets and had an early night but the remnants of the headache are still there this morning.

I remember now that when I was pre- Frenchic and painting a lot I suffered with headaches most of the time. It just didn’t dawn on me that it was the products I was using.

I paint pretty much full time these days and always use Frenchic products and I’m delighted to say that daily headaches are a thing of the past now.

Worth noting!!
