Boiled Linseed Oil is used to give a mellow, patinated finish to new or stripped bare interior wood. It is a superior quality oil, similar to Raw Linseed, but has had hot air passed through it to improve drying times. Suitable for use on all types of wood, except exterior oak, it can also be used as a traditional sealer for terracotta tiles, stone floors and other porous surfaces before waxing.
For ease of application 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 penetration of future coats and 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 damaged, work in a new coat.
