    Metal Finish Recipe

    This recipe is a finish for applying to hot metal. It leaves a semi-gloss, I would call it satin, finish on metal. It doesn't have to be applied hot, though. It works as a great preservative on any metal surface. When applied hot it darkens. When applied cold, it leaves a brilliant shine. This can also be used on wood and leather as a polish as well. The mix consists of boiled linseed oil, turpentine, and beeswax. Hope you enjoy!

    Thanks for the video. I'm always looking for traditional or art like metal finishes.
