I wish I had known about Hemp Oil as a finish topcoat years ago.
Hemp Oil is not only good for our bodies (people use it on skin, put it in smoothies), but it is also an excellent hydrator for wood and a sealant for porous paint surfaces. Now I completely understand if you’re wondering how a product can be great to ingest and can also be used as a top coat? You must think I’m out of my mind! Well, Wikipedia does a much better job of explaining that than I can so please go and review that here.
What Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint Hemp Oil does as a finish coat is it goes through a porous paint surface (flat latex, chalk-based paints & milk paint) to the substrate layer underneath and locks the paint surface on. Hemp oil takes a chalky, flat looking paint surface and wakes it up. It’s like a lotion for paint and wood, while sealing and protecting at the very same time.
The most important thing to point out about Hemp Oil is that in this paint and furniture refinishing world there aren’t many products that are truly “safe” to use. But hemp oil is! It is 100% PURE PLANT BASED HEMP OIL. At least the Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint brand is. There is nothing synthetic in it whatsoever. No additives, no chemicals, nothing. It’s even Food Grade. There’s a food grade label right on the bottle! That’s one of THE best things about this product.
You can apply hemp oil with a sponge brush, chip brush or a lint free cloth. I prefer to use my hands. Yes, I will actually put a few drops of hemp oil into my hands and rub it in to the paint surface, dispersing and moving it around as I go. I accomplish 3 things when I’m doing this: ensuring the surface is very smooth (because there’s no better judge of that than my hand), ensuring I don’t use more than I need and providing my hands with a great oil treatment at the same time. This is a nice application method because you only need enough to penetrate the surface and applying it with your hand provides the best control. If the surface feels really oily, you may have applied too much.
This is what it looked like after applying it recently to a small secretary I redid:
You can see from the photo above that on most of the secretary, it soaked right in and in other places, it’s taking a little longer to soak in. That’s the wood saying “I’ve had too much to drink here. I don’t need that much”. Give it a little while and if it still looks like that, then you can just wipe away the excess with a cloth.
Here is the finished secretary in our shop:
I only put on one coat, but just as with any top coat, you can apply more layers of hemp oil to (1) add more layers of protection to your painted surface and (2) to increase the sheen a little. You can also wax over hemp oil if you like, but never the other way around.
Not only is hemp oil great for porous paint surfaces, but it’s also an excellent revitalizer of old, dull wood surfaces. You’ve got grandma’s inherited armoire but God forbid you should paint it because your family will come after you? But it’s dry, dull and gray looking and needs a little “pick me up”. Hemp oil is just the right product for that job!!
Not to mention but, because Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint Hemp Oil food grade, you can also use it to hydrate your wooden spoons, cutting boards, wooden salad bowls, butcher block countertops, et cetera.
As if all of that wasn’t enough to answer any questions you might have and get you excited about using it, here is a great, quick video by Miss Mustard Seed that demonstrates just how incredible this product is, the difference it makes right before your eyes, and how easy it is to apply. Enjoy:
