New or Bare Timber

  1. Bare wood must be clean, smooth, dry and free from wax, dust and other surface contaminants
  2. Bare wood may be stained or dyed with either a water based or solvent based wood stain or dye before application of Danish finishing oil
  3. Do not apply a knotting agent or sanding sealer

Previously Coated Timber

  1. Ensure that all previous paints and varnishes are removed with a suitable paint and varnish remover before finishing with Danish Oil
  2. Previously waxed surfaces should be thoroughly scrubbed with white spirit or a wax and polish remover, and a scouring pad
  3. Wipe away the dissolved wax or polish with a clean rag
  4. Wipe surface with water to test that all of the wax has been removed
  5. Repeat the process if the water continues to bead on the surface of the wood

Always do a test area to confirm performance and compatibility before starting any project and follow the manufacturer's instructions on the container at all times. Stir/shake Rustins Danish Oil well before use or product will dry to a gloss finish.

Danish Oil should be applied at a room temperature of between 15? - 25?. Do not apply below 5?.

  1. Apply the Danish Oil liberally with a clean lint-free cloth or good quality brush, and wipe off any surplus oil after a few minutes
  2. For a superior smooth finish, the final coat may be applied using a plastic scouring pad, rubbing in the direction of the grain and wiping away any surplus with a soft, lint-free cloth or paper towel
  3. Re-coat once the previous coat is dry (approximately 4 - 6 hours in normal drying conditions)
  4. New or bare wood should be oiled 3 times initially
  5. Exterior wood requires a minimum of 3 coats applied liberally and not wiped off
  6. To improve penetration and durability, dilute the first coat 20% with white spirit
  7. If applying Danish Oil to veneered doors, it is advisable to check with the door manufacturer before proceeding

Surfaces finished with Rustins Danish Oil can be periodically re-coated if the surface becomes tired looking, dry or scuffed. Wipe surfaces before re-oiling with a lint-free cloth or rag slightly dampened with White Spirit.
