Stir the tin well with a broad, flat stirrer and pour the required amount into a suitable container to work from. Use a brush or lint free (Chux) cloth to apply evenly along the wood grain or painted surface, ensuring all areas are completely coated.
Allow 15 minutes for the Finishing Oil to absorb into the surface.
Wipe off any excess with a lint free cloth and buff until the cloth moves freely. Allow to fully dry with good ventilation – 12 hours in optimum conditions.
Number of coats
Generally one coat is sufficient, but for high traffic areas a second coat is recommended. Allow 24 hours between coats with no sanding required.
Allow 7 days for the Finishing Oil to fully cure after application.

The Finishing Oils are going to give you a buildable tint of colour great if you want control over your opacity. They can be used over both Chalk & Clay Paint (stunning over the darker colours) as a sealant and on raw timber.
Engrained Stains are really meant to be applied over raw timber to change the colour of the wood. They're a matte finish and two coats are generally recommended (unless working with 'Gallery White' which is very opaque).
Both lines can be used on high traffic surfaces like kitchen counter tops, kitchen or bathroom cabinets.
In short no, our finishes are durable if you leave your piece for 7 days to cure fully.
However, if you have a high traffic piece that you're particularly worried about scratching (you know how you 'live' in your home better than me) - I recommend you apply another coat of clear from whichever finish line you're using. 'Natural Satin' or 'Raw Matte' over the top of a tinted Finishing Oil, or 'Bare Grain' over an Engrained Stain with colour.
Different species of timber will take stains differently. The most problematic species for splotchiness in my experience is pine. When I say splotchiness, I'm talking about a surface that absorbs stain more in some places than others making it look uneven.
To fix splotchiness, you can either keep applying more coats to try and cover it up with opacity or sand back to wood again.
To prevent it (and save yourself the pain) - I recommend applying a clear coat of 'Bare Grain,' stain, 'Natural Satin,' or 'Raw Matte' Finishing Oil as a first coat to create an evenly hydrated surface for the coloured stain to absorb into. Some of you may have sanding sealer/or wood conditioning product in your collection too which works in a similar manner.
I wouldn't, as it's cost prohibitive given the tin size.
