Containing oils that oxidize readily to darken the wood, this wax produces a deep, rich patina over time. It has the same high proportion of wax and semi-solid consistency as Odie’s Wax, polishing to a rich, semi-gloss sheen.
It produces a durable, non-toxic finish and works well on any wood species, particularly on dense, oily exotics. It can be used to topcoat Odie’s Dark Oil to add depth and protection, and to rejuvenate other oil finishes.
A blend of natural, renewable waxes and oils, it is free of solvents and VOCs. Application is straightforward – simply work it into the surface using an extra-fine abrasive pad or cloth, and leave it to absorb for 1 to 2 hours before buffing.
It enhances the figure while only slightly deepening the tone of the wood, and though a low-build finish, it has high resistance to liquids, sunlight and abrasion. Only a single coat is required; for greater protection, additional coats may be applied. No sanding is needed between coats, making the finish easy to renew or repair.
Exceptionally high-yield, it provides coverage of approximately 190 sq.ft. per 9 oz jar, depending on the porosity of the wood. Drying time is about 24 hours; for contact with food or liquids, allow 3 to 5 days to cure fully. Interior applications only.
