This formulation contains oils that oxidize more readily than Odie’s Wood Butter to darken the wood, producing a deep, rich patina over time. It contains the same proportion of wax and has the same thick consistency, buffing to a deep, satin sheen.
It produces an attractive, 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 oils and waxes, 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 soak in for 1 to 2 hours before buffing.
It enhances the figure and deepens the color 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.
