Stain & Finishing Oil is a wood conditioner, stain and top coat all in one that offers exceptional durability in high traffic areas like table tops, kitchen cabinets, and even flooring.

Can be used on bare wood or over previously painted surfaces.No additional top coat required - it is highly durable as is. If you're looking for added durability, applying a coat of Natural will increase sheen and durability without intensifying your colour. 

If you apply it over Fusion Mineral Paint™ for a glaze effect or to increase the sheen, we recommend removing excess right away, as the SFO will not soak in and may leave a sticky finish that takes a few days to dry.

Use the Natural colour over Fusion Mineral Paint™ colours to increase the sheen and offer superior durability, or brush on one of the pigmented colours and wipe off immediately for a beautiful, easy glaze effect.

Our special blend is highly concentrated in pigment, so a little goes a long way. The 237 mL container will cover the same area as 1 litre of comparable stains.

Please keep in mind that all oil based products typically yellow in time. Using this over top of a white paint, will cause a slight yellowing effect. We recommend our Tough Coat for going over lighter colours to avoid yellowing. 

Fusion™ Mineral Paint Stain & Finishing Oil over bare wood.

Using our Stain and Finishing Oil (SFO) over bare wood is a straightforward process:

Begin by generously applying the SFO either by pouring it onto the surface or brushing it on, ensuring even coverage on the properly prepped and sanded wood.
After allowing it to penetrate for anywhere up to 15 minutes, remove any excess with a clean rag. For added depth of colour or increased sheen, consider applying a second coat after the recommended re-coat time of 9 hours.

The natural pigments in the SFO enhance the wood's grain, offering a beautiful accentuation. This product is a blend of natural oils and resins designed to penetrate deeply into the wood fibers, creating a robust, and water-resistant finish.

Unlike traditional topcoats, SFO doesn't form a surface film; instead, it becomes an integral part of your wood, providing long-lasting protection and enhancing its natural beauty.

Stain & Finishing Oil over Fusion™ Mineral Paint 

Stain and Finishing Oil (SFO) can be used over larger surfaces and over Fusion™ Mineral Paint to increase protection and the sheen, the more coats you apply the more increase in sheen will occur.

Over larger painted surfaces the SFO needs to be applied in thin amounts and buffed on. Applying in long strokes from end to end can result in lines or streaks. Over table tops for example you should apply the SFO in circular motions and ensure the excess is removed. You are aiming for the thinnest, even application possible.
