Rustins Original Danish Oil is the easy wipe-on low lustre finish for all types of wood. Use it on all interior and exterior wooden surfaces including...doors, dressers, cladding, garden and indoor furniture, window frames, turned woodwork etc.
The special ingredients used in the manufacture of Danish Oil penetrate deep into all types of timber, drying to a hard, durable and water resistant seal.
Unlike varnishes it does not leave a thick film on the surface which may peel, chip or craze on ageing.
The oil dries quickly in 4 to 6 hours, depending on ambient temperature and humidity, producing a non tacky surface.
It does not, therefore pick up dust as will wood treated with linseed oil.
It's so easy to use simply apply liberally with a clean rag or brush and wipe off the surplus oil after a few minutes. Allow to dry and repeat. New wood generally requires 3 applications.
Absolutely no skill is required for application, as even when the oil is applied with a brush, it does not have to be brushed out in the same way as a varnish.
The brush is merely used to spread the oil liberally over the surface. Danish Oil will bring out the beauty of all timbers and give a natural open-grained soft lustrous finish.
The natural colour of the wood may be altered by staining with Rustin's Wood Dye before applying Danish Oil.
The Wood Dye can also be added to Danish Oil to make a tinted oil.
Danish Oil may be applied to surfaces that have been treated with other oils, provided the surfaces are clean.
1 litre will cover approximately 14 square metres with one coat depending on the absorbency of the wood.
