Dilute the first few coats with turpentine (up to 30%). Rub well into the wood using a lint-free cotton cloth.
After about 20 minutes, wipe off the excess with a clean lint-free cloth. (Failure to do so will prevent prenetration of future coats and will leave a sticky surface).
Repeat the previous steps once or twice at 24 hour intervals.
Apply a final coat of Boiled Linseed Oil, again wiping off any excess. Allow this final coat to harden for a few days before use. A light rubbing in between coats with Ultra Fine Steel Wool (Grade 0000) will improve results. If the surface becomes damanged, work in a new coat.
Oil finishes bring out the natural colours of timber. A wet surface will be an indication of the final colour. Always test the product on a space surface or inconspicuous area for colour, compatibility and end result.
Cleaning & Maintenance
Wipe the surface with a damp cloth and buff dry. Re-oil as and when required depending upon usage.
Store Boiled Linseed Oil at a temperature 5°C. Always replace the lid otherwise the oil can deteriorate.
Do not leave impregnated cloths in bundles.
Before discarding the cloths lay them flat outside to dry to avoid a fire hazard.
If the excess is not removed and the surface becomes sticky, wipe with white spirit to remove the sticky film and allow to dry before continuing.
Please Note: Oily cloths can self-combust.
