Sweet Pickins Tung Oil Blend is half pure, high grade, hard drying tung oil + half all natural food safe citrus oil (with no added driers). Tung Oil Blend is ideal for wood finishing and compliments milk painted finishes perfectly. The added citrus solvent is the carrier to help the oil penetrate quicker and deeper into the surface you are sealing.

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. Clean up with mineral spirits. Re-apply when surface starts to look dry. Make sure to properly dispose of rags to prevent combustion.
**REMINDER** Tung Oils that have been blended/cut are an oil based product which can spontaneously combust if under the right conditions. Remember to dispose of all rags that you have used any oil based (stain included) product on in a metal container with a lid (you can buy them on amazon or grab one at any auto/hardware supply store). This is especially true if your in a hotter climate and rags are left bunched up. Sadly lots of house fires are caused from people just throwing oil and stain rags in the trash can. But this is easily preventable! There are some more disposing techniques and you can google them to see what will work best for you.**
