Wanting a beachy look, or the surface to look raw or untreated? Why not, this is becoming an increasingly popular look, especially on ply and concrete. Whilst the clear oil highlights and deepens the colour of the substrate one is working on, sometimes it is nice to keep it in its original sanded and untreated look.
The Kunos white oil is a great alternative and increasing in its popularity for this reason. Not only does it keep the substrate from yellowing, it is completely non toxic, easy to use as well as having an economical coverage rate.
The oil is an all in one stain and sealer combining the benefits of penetrating oils, hardening resins and water-resistant waxes and in the case, white pigments. If using on timber, remember that timber is a natural material and often comes with its own individual characteristics and imperfections. The oil will allow these natural imperfections to be visible, even after oiling. When using a stain, you need to remember sanding needs to be more exact. Any scratches in the surface left by sanding paper will be highlighted even more. As the oils are penetrating oils, one can also manipulate the intensity of the white by the sanding process.
