- Application Methods
- Brush, Cloth
Use Raw Linseed Oil on Oak and Boiled for other timbers and applications. Clean the surface with Bird Brand White Spirit and ensure it is dry and free of any other coatings. Apply sparingly using a brush or cloth and wipe off any excess oil before it starts to dry otherwise a tacky residue will remain that can only be removed by abrasive sanding. On very porous surfaces the first coat of Linseed Oil can be diluted by 10% with Bird Brand White Spirit or Genuine Turpentine. If being applied to old Oak beams the wood will darken considerably. Apply as many coats as necessary to achieve a good finish. Use Bird Brand White Spirit to clean equipment.
