USE OF TUNG OIL FOR FINISHING WOOD

Preparation of the surface to apply the oil:

The surface should be sanded to finish with a 120 grit paper. Apply to a clean, dust-free wood surface. You can stain the wood with Dye without sealant such as: milk paint, walnut stain, Tandem-1 oil or any other water or alcohol-based stain.

Stain the oil with pigments:

You can also directly color your oil with natural earth pigments, iron oxidesbitumen of Judea or dry pigments from our “Artist” range.

Color only your first layer. Mix the pigments with a small amount of oil to form a paste. When the dough is homogeneous without lumps incorporate the rest of the oil.

Apply the tung oil on the wood:

The application can be done with an applicator pad, with a natural silk dye brush, with bleached cotton linen, with cotton wicks or for large surfaces with our microfiber applicator. Thereafter, wait 20 to 30 minutes after the application of each layer and wipe the excess with a rag or a clean cotton wick, a period of 24 hours is required between the layers.     

  • 2 to 4 layers are needed for furniture and woodwork with little used.    
  • 4-6 layers for heavily used furniture, cutting boards, salad bowls or food contact surfaces.     
  • 6-8 layers for floors.

To improve the penetration and drying process, it is recommended to dilute the oil with ISO-Diluent or with our citrus solvent. Mix 50% diluent in the oil and add 2% to 3% oil driers to accelerate the drying (12 hrs with driers). The siccative also slightly increases the gloss and hardness of the finish.

The first two layers should be diluted and the others applied just with siccatif. (ex: For a finish with 4 layers, two with thinner and 2 without thinner)

** Use pure oil for maintenance of surfaces for cutting for food.
