Indoor & Outdoor Use - Highly Water Resistant - Non-Toxic Finish - Quick Drying - Easy To Apply - Highly Durable
Littlefair’s Superior Wood Finishing Danish Oil has been specially formulated for finishing woodwork when a highly durable, natural looking, waterproof finish is required. This oil provides a tough natural finish excellent for waterproofing our Water Based Wood Dyes prior to waxing.
It can be used on all wood & sheet materials - doors, windows, floors, stair parts & furniture. However, If you are finishing a worktop please use our Superior Worktop Oil for a tough natural finish.
Careful, thorough preparation will result in a far superior finish, especially when applied over our Water Based Wood Dye.
(Please refer to the instructions on the dye).
If you are dying the wood first, the final appearance will be a combination of the wood’s natural colour, the dye and the oil. It is always a good idea to prepare a test piece in exactly the same manner as your project.
Ensure your wood is as clean as possible and free from previous finishes. Do not apply the dye to wet surfaces or if there is a risk of rain or frost.
Apply evenly with a good quality brush or cloth. Alternatively the oil can be sprayed. A light, thin coat will dry quicker but further coats will be required to create a durable, waterproof finish. Allow two to three hours to dry, then lightly rub back before applying a further coat.
Normally, two coats can provide exceptional protection however, when applying over our Water Based Wood Dyes it is advisable to apply at least three coats - especially when used with darker colours. When finished, simply clean your equipment with white spirit.
It’s important to note that the final appearance will be a combination of the wood’s natural colour, the effect of the dye (if used) and the oil. With this in mind - always produce a test piece so you can properly judge the result.
First coat should be touch dry in approximately 2-3 hours.
Please note: this is an approximate drying time. There could be a number of factors that may affect this.
Approx. coverage of 12m² per litre, for one liberal coat.
