Apply with a dry, clean cotton cloth or brush over your milk painted, stained or raw wood project. Let sit for 5-10 minutes then wipe off excess. Build up coats for a more water resistant and durable finish (allow 2-3 hours between coats). Tung Oil will dry to the touch in a day or so and will reach its final hardness after a 2 week curing time. Tung Oil can be thinned with mineral spirits or a citrus solvent to make it easier to apply, penetrate and dry faster (or get our Tung Oil Blend here!). Thin with a 1:1 ratio.
Clean up with hot water and dish soap. Re-apply when surface starts to look dry. Pure Tung Oil is not combustible, but if you use a solvent to thin, please make sure to properly dispose of rags to prevent combustion.
