Hello to all,
I plan to use linseed oil (boiled) on a project. While reading a woodworking reference book, I noticed that the recommended procedure for using linseed oil is to dilute (50 %) the first coat with mineral spirits. Can you tell me if this dilution applies to boiled linseed oil or just to raw linseed oil? Are there any advantages to cutting boiled linseed oil with a solvent?
Thanks in advance,
