Some years ago I tested linseed oil for my varnish cooking, domestic linseed oil was the best (Wanha viljami, sateenkaari värit)

If you cook it for 4-5 hours in a double boiler, standing on a piece of wood (see last image) you will get a very siccative oil for your varnish, that cures with minimal UV.

The color is not that important, it will get transparent in half a year to one year without UV anyway and has no influence on varnish drying time.




Is the wood to add tannin?

I will be washing more linseed oil after I get to better water.

These ones I have already wasted.


Next, I have to try to make darker colour from varnish.

This one is touch dry in 4 hours in the sun, with temperature about 12C outside.

I think in this case, the varnish is succes, but Im not sure about colour. I have to add more layers to see if its too orange.
