WOOD FINISHING OIL

Whether you’re looking for the perfect protective finish to your latest painting project, preserve the integrity of older work, or want to add a special touch to a treasured piece of furniture, Real Milk Paint wood finishes are an excellent choice. Depending on the type of finish you’re looking for, you can choose from our:

  • Pure tung oil or Dark tung oil
  • Natural citrus solvent or half-and-half citrus solvent and tung oil
  • Hemp oil

Pure tung oil has been trusted for thousands of years as a water resistant wood finish. After drying time, this oil finish forms a protective final coat over top of the surface to which it’s been applied. Tung oil can be used as a top coat over paint or as a wood finishing oil, making it great for projects like dining tables, kitchen tables, cabinetry, floors, doors, bowls (Tung oil is FDA approved as food safe), butcher blocks, and cutting boards, and can even be used on brick and concrete.

DARK TUNG OIL FINISH

Real Milk Paint’s dark tung oil is similar to our regular tung oil, except that it has a natural and non-toxic resin added to the mix that brings depth to wood grain. It also creates a dark, matte finish that results in a classic aged and antique look. Dark tung oil has all the same great features as our regular tung oil, so it’s ideal for all the same types of projects.

HEMP OIL FINISH

If you’re looking for natural wood oils and VOC-free finishes, hemp oil is a fantastic choice. Hemp Oil is very popular when it comes to sealing over milk paint for furniture refinishers.  It requires no thinning, has a pleasant nutty aroma, and has a color that varies from a light green to a golden yellow. Like tung oil, hemp oil dries to a matte finish, and can be used on bare wood or as a finish on top of the paint.

NATURAL CITRUS SOLVENT

Our natural citrus solvent is an environmentally friendly product that can be used as a paint thinner alternative, in place of mineral spirits, and as a degreaser. Our solvent is made from pure orange peel extract and water and doesn’t contain the additives or surfactants found in traditional paint thinners.

HALF TUNG OIL AND HALF CITRUS SOLVENT

Before being applied, tung oil has to be thinned out to ensure the best coverage and penetration. But getting the ratio right can be difficult, which is why we started bottling the perfect natural oil and citrus solvent mixture for you. This blend is ideal for:

  • Coating, sealing and protecting all types of wood from wear and water
  • Bringing out wood’s natural look
  • Deepening the natural wood color

The Real Milk Paint Company has many wood finishing oil products available to protect your furniture, spoon carving projects, green woodworking, and other enjoyable projects. All of our milk paint colors and finishes are guaranteed to be the highest quality and environmentally friendly.
