Ideal for Maintenance
In addition to finishing raw wood, Wood Waxes also works great for maintaining items you’ve already finished with it. For instance, it serves particularly well as a cutting board wax, allowing you to refresh this kitchen staple quickly and easily. Simply apply it with a clean cloth to projects when you need to refresh and rejuvenate their previous sheen.
“Can I use Wood Wax over products like your Milk Paint, Half & Half, Dark Half, Pure Tung Oil, Hemp Oil, Dark Tung Oil, etc?”
Yes! We recommend allowing the products mentioned above to fully dry before applying Wood Wax on the treated surface. For Real Milk Paint, 24-48 hours would be sufficient. For finishing oils, the full 30 days is necessary.
“Can I use this over a surface already treated with another finish?”
Yes and no as it depends on the finish. If the surface was previously treated with a mineral-oil finish, that finish will need to be removed before applying Wood Wax. (We recommend hot water and soap or our Citrus Solvent to remove the mineral oil.) If the surface has an oil-based stain, water-based stain, or Real Milk Paint you can apply the Wood Wax over these.
“It says the Wood Wax requires 15-30 days to fully cure, is there any way I can speed up that process?”
One of the best ways to decrease the curing time is to put the treated items in a warm environment. Professionals or those using Wood Wax for batch cutting boards, bowls, spoons, etc often use a lightbulb kiln to quickly cure the wax. This small space, low-heat solution passively cures the wax at a much quicker rate. Our manufacturing process also involves heating the walnut oil/carnauba wax. This heating process helps push the walnut oil to polymerize quicker.
“Is there a risk of walnut oil going rancid?”
Because walnut oil is a drying oil, meaning it transforms from an oil to a solid through a polymerization process, it does not run the risk of going rancid. If the oil were to “spoil” it would simply turn hard.
“One of the ingredients is ‘walnut oil’ aren’t you concerned about allergic reactions?”
While it is impossible to rule out the possibility of an allergic reaction, there is good evidence to suggest that the walnut oil in Wood Wax won’t provoke a reaction. First, walnut oil is not high in proteins, which are the typical culprits for reactions. Walnut Oil is also a polymerizing/drying oil. Most allergens are caused by oils that do not polymerize/dry. When the oil is polymerized/dry the proteins are no longer active. The use of heating during the manufacturing process of Wood Wax causes the walnut oil to polymerize faster. This heating of the walnut oil (polymerized walnut oil) is also thought to reduce the risk of allergic reactions. We recommend each customer consult their physician if they have an allergy concern before use of Wood Wax.
