Preparation and method of application are essential for great results:

  • Apply a minimum of 3 coats allowing 12–24 hours between coats. Leave the final coat to absorb / dry for a few days before use. 
  • For best results on new woods, dilute the first two coats with 30% Barrettine Turps/White Spirit.
  • Can also be used to soften putty and as a lubricant for French Polishing.
  • Mainly used for internal purposes but if used outside, we recommend a prior application of wood preservative treatment that must be allowed to dry before applying Raw Linseed Oil.  Regular retreatment will be required.
  • Clean equipment with Barrettine White Spirit.
  • Precaution: cloths used for oiling may spontaneously combust.  Immediately after use, soak them in soapy water then lay them flat outside on a non-combustible surface to dry.
