  • Chemical staining, including ammonia, caustic soda and bleaches

Oils and Waxes

  • Linseed (raw and boiled)
  • Tung oil
  • Danish oil
  • Osmo Polyx Wax oil

For each of the techniques, surface preparation and health and safety issues are considered. Finally the students get to have a go so that they can see the results on different woods.
