A rich golden coloured oil ideal for protecting and enhancing machine and hand made terracotta. Fills and hardens within the open pores of the terracotta inhibiting the absorption of grime and fluids. Offers good mechanical strength to low fire hand made terracotta.
Do not let the oil oxidise on the surface of the tile. Remove any surplus, not absorbed into the tiles, within one hour of application using a clean cloth and, if necessary, a little Genuine Turpentine. Experiment on spare tiles to establish the number of coats required to achieve full saturation.
Directions for use
Apply by brush a coat at a time until the tiles are saturated. Allow at least 12 hours between each coat to ensure that the oil thoroughly oxidises. Most Terracotta will take one or two coats to reach saturation, while others, particularly some of the cruder hand made varieties, may take as many as four, five or even six coats. Leave the final coat to dry for at least 24 hours before polishing with any wax or other finished.
