Half and Half by Real Milk Paint is Tung oil and citrus solvent mixed 1 to 1 . This produces a penetrating, easy to apply finish that is water resistant, flexible, durable, and beautiful. Use Half and Half on cutting boards (Tung oil is FDA approved for Food contact), wooden utensiles, work benches, flooring, decks, outdoor furniture (or indoor), even brick, or concrete.
Unlike the brain melting solvents found in many finishes, Half and Half is non toxic and smells delightfully like a Florida citrus grove. Real Milk Paint mixes up two colors of Half and Half: Half and Half which made from Pure Tung Oil, and Dark Half which is made using, yep you guessed it, Dark Tung oil, which contains a resinous hydrocarbon to give darker finish, that looks great open-pore woods like oak.
Compared to Pure Tung Oil and Dark Tung Oil, Half and Half will penetrate dense surfaces more easily, and has a slightly lower viscosity. Tung Oil, and Half and Half both give the same beautiful durable matte finish. We've found that the thinner viscosity of Half and Half makes even application on complex shapes a little easier. The added citrus solvent also helps the oil to dry more quickly.

Half and Half is Flammable: Keep containers tightly closed away from extreme temperature changes and open flames.

Immediately after use, place the oil soaked material in a sealed water-filled metal container or hang outside separately to dry.
