Wiping Varnish Medium Lustre is the perfect choice as a topcoat for providing a semi-gloss sheen while providing extra protection to the surface.

Wiping Varnish Low Lustre contains equal amounts of Interior/Original Formula Polymerized Tung Oil and protective Resin, providing a long open time for application, ease of wiping, as well as the supple oil feel to a cured surface.

The process begins with two coats of Wiping Varnish Sealer as the base coats, which have a higher percentage of Tung Oil, that help fill the wood pore and enhance the grain definition. Complete the process with two or more coats of Wiping Varnish Medium Lustre for a medium to semi-gloss sheen.

The addition of our Polymerized Tung Oil oil to our resin system allows you to apply as a hand wiped finish, making it very user-friendly just like our Original Formula Polymerized Tung Oil and Botanical Polymerized Tung Oil. The solvent in the Wiping Varnish is VOC exempt, has minimal odor and a slow evaporation rate, allowing for more open time for application prior to set-up and the need to wipe.
