Tung Oil Varnish

Product Details

This product is made from a blend of Tung Oil and fine varnishes. It dries to a durable, non-oily finish which is water and alcohol resistant. It penetrates the wood surface to protect fine furniture, enhancing the natural beauty and richness of the wood grain.


Where to Use
Tung Oil Varnish is recommended for use on interior, bare wood surfaces. Ideal for use on antiques and fine furniture. Can also be applied to cabinets, furniture, tables and bar tops.

Surface Preparation
All surfaces must be clean, dry and free from dirt, wax, grease, glue and other contaminants.

• Apply Old Masters® Tung Oil Varnish with a lint-free cloth, rubbing in the direction of the woodgrain. For brushing applications, brush in the direction of the woodgrain.
• Wipe off excess with a clean, lint-free cloth.
• Allow the surface to dry 4 to 6 hours.
