Surface Preparation

Sand new wood to obtain a smooth, uniform surface. For existing woodwork or furniture, use Circa 1850 Furniture Cleaner to remove dirt and polish. If desired, use Circa 1850 Furniture Stripper, Heavy Body Remover, or Soft Strip to remove any existing paint or varnish.


Avoid working in direct sunlight or wind. Do not stir. Apply without dilution. Apply a generous coat of Antique Paste Varnish with a lint-free cloth. Rub gently in a circular motion to allow penetration into the wood. Immediately wipe in the direction of the grain to remove the excess. Let dry for 12-24 hours. Lightly sand the surface, remove all dust and apply a second or third coat as above. To obtain a finish that is a bit shinier, a third and fourth coat may be applied, always waiting 24 hours between coats.

Dry Time

Allow 24 hours prior to normal use. Avoid heavy traffic for at least 72 hours. Dry time may be affected by high humidity, temperatures below 20C (68F), or application of thick coats.


Up to 10m² (100ft²) per 946mL.
