Unlike other linseed oils, our Boiled Linseed oil is very unique its been boiled twice and hot air is passed through it to ensure it dries faster and provides a harder wearing coating to the surface.

It’s fantastic for terracotta tiles and porous stone providing a barrier of protection for interior and exterior surfaces.
When used as a wood finish, linseed oil dries slowly and shrinks little upon hardening. Linseed oil does not cover the surface as varnish does, but soaks into the (visible and microscopic) pores, leaving a shiny but not glossy surface that shows off the grain of the wood. A linseed oil finish is easily repaired.

Apply in the direction of the grain on all wooden surfaces, and sand lightly between coats to give an even great enhancement of the natural gain pattern, sanding is carried out with a fine grade wool 0000 or a very fine 2000 grit sandpaper foam pad to remove any small blemishes in the surface.
