Yeah they are actually mixed. The most traditional form of the French Polish method involves a pad with a few drops of linseed on it and a thin, high grade shellac. You can buy this mixture now, under the guise of french polish, various turner's polishes, etc. What a guy is doing on a pipe is sort of the first coat (french polish taking many, many quick coats) and walking away, and then doing a tripoli polish and wax finish rather than continuing on and doing a shellac finish.

It takes a Polish guy to rub it on and a French guy to tell everyone how great it is.
