Circa 1850 Marine Grade Antique Paste Varnish

Circa 1850 Marine Grade Antique Paste Varnish is a gelled modified polyurethane varnish. It creates a rich patina and provides a true hand-rubbed finish that protects against heat, water and alcohol. Circa 1850 Marine Grade Antique Paste Varnish dries quickly - free from dust specks and brush marks. It is ideal for woodwork, cabinets, and all wood furniture. Circa 1850 Marine Grade Antique Paste Varnish contains transparent absorbers to screen out UV rays and inhibit the greying and fading effects of the sun, and incorporates a superior fungicide and mildewcide to increase performance.


Circa 1850 Marine Grade Antique Paste Varnish can be applied onto bare, stained or finished wood.

SURFACE PREPARATION: Sand new wood to obtain a smooth, uniform surface. For existing woodwork or furniture, use Circa 1850 Furniture Cleaner to remove dirt and polish. If desired, use Circa 1850 Furniture Stripper, Heavy Body Remover, or Soft•Strip to remove any existing paint or varnish.

APPLICATION: Avoid working in direct sunlight or wind. Do not stir. Apply without dilution. Apply a generous coat of Marine Grade Antique Paste Varnish with a cheese cloth or other lint-free cloth. Rub gently in a circular motion to allow penetration into the wood. Immediately wipe in the direction of the grain to remove the excess. Let dry for 12-24 hours. Lightly sand the surface, remove all dust and apply a second or third coat as above. To obtain a finish that is a bit shinier, a third and fourth coat may be applied, always waiting 24 hours between coats.

DRY TIME: Allow 24 hours prior to normal use. Avoid heavy traffic for at least 72 hours. Dry time may be affected by high humidity, temperatures below 20C (68F), or application of thick coats.

COVERAGE: Up to 10m² (100ft²) per 946mL.

CLEAN-UP: Clean up using Klenk's Mineral Spirits, Klenk's Paint Thinner or Circa 1850 Pure Turpentine.
