Seal and Protect Woodturning Projects

Achieve a smooth, even finish every time with finishing oils and waxes from the Real Milk Paint Co. Our Pure Tung Oil delivers a gorgeous matte finish that resists abrasions, acids, blistering and peeling for enduring protection for handmade home decor. Safe for use on food contact surfaces per the FDA, our Pure Tung Oil is made from 100% pure China wood oil for an all-natural finish that adds luster and enriches the wood tone. Use this protective finishing oil in a 1:1 mix with our Orange Oil Natural Citrus Solvent for deep penetration on porous surfaces, or purchase our Half & Half oil for premixed convenience.

If you prefer a solvent-free finishing option, try Wood Wax by the Real Milk Paint Co. Made with all plant-based ingredients for a vegan-friendly way to complete the look of woodturning projects, our Wood Wax contains no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or mineral oils for a sustainable way to finish raw wood and painted surfaces alike. When you want a high-sheen finish, however, use our Clear Carnauba Paste Wax instead. This wood finishing product dries hard without stickiness or tackiness for exceptional endurance on turned wood furnishings like salad bowls, table and chair legs.

Beautify Turned Wood Pieces With Color

Customize your woodturning projects with Real Milk Paint® from the Real Milk Paint Co. Available in 56 shades made with all-natural pigments and ingredients, our milk paint offers a beautiful complement to everything from turned wood salt and pepper shakers, candleholders and keepsake boxes to handmade drawer pulls and children’s toys. Choose neutral hues like Cheesecake or Oyster Grey to highlight the simple beauty of turned chair legs, or use cheery hues like Flag Red and Blue Lagoon to draw little eyes and hands to hammer and peg sets for kids. A formulation that’s safe for kids and pets as well as food contact surfaces makes Real Milk Paint your go-to choice for beautifying turned wood crafts.

Seal painted pieces easily with our Wood Wax or Pure Tung Oil, and rely on the barrier to protect the paint on frequently used pieces. Our hard-drying waxes go on easily over surfaces coated with Real Milk Paint for fuss-free application and allow simple reapplication as needed to maintain the finish you desire.
