Fiddes Hard Wax Oil Tints offers an extremely hard-wearing, oil-based wood stain finish that dries to a soft satin sheen. Perfect for most interior wooden surfaces, including floors, doors, skirting boards, furniture and more. Child and food safe when dry, this product is ideal for wooden chopping boards, utensils and children's toys.
Before opening the 5ml sample sachets, squeeze the packet several times to ensure that the oil and pigments inside are thoroughly mixed.
Ensure that wooden surfaces, especially floors, have been sanded and prepared with care. Poor preparation and / or sanding technique may result in a poor finish. Surfaces must be clean and dry, removing all traces of dust and dirt before application (maximum moisture content 20%). Only apply on frost-free surface. For guaranteed performance it is always recommended to remove all traces of a previous finish.
Always do a small test area before beginning any project to assess compatibility and suitability. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times.
Fiddes Hard Wax Oil Tints is ready-to-use from the tin, do not thin. Stir thoroughly prior and periodically during application. Fiddes Hard Wax Oils dry via oxidation so it is important to ensure good ventilation during application and drying.
The ideal application tool is a firm, fine, natural bristle brush, however the key to a great finish is thin application with removal of any surplus with a clean, lint free cloth.
Cork tiles are best treated before fitting to avoid overlapping treatment of edges which would lead to prolonged drying times. A cork floor treated with Fiddes Hard Wax Oil Tints will get a robust, elastic and wear-resistant surface which will harden further over several weeks. Due to the extreme absorption power of this highly elastic, natural, material we recommend the following procedure:
Fiddes Hard Wax Oil Tints can be intermixed to produce unique colours. For a more translucent finish add clear Hard Wax Oil. Here are some tips for achieving different effects:
For day to day cleaning, surfaces treated with Fiddes Hard Wax Oil Tints can be dry wiped, swept or vacuumed.
To clean surface scuffs, marks and stains, use Fiddes Floor Surface Cleaner and a damp (not wet) microfibre cloth or mop.
Please Note: Although Fiddes Cleaner is named 'Floor Surface Cleaner' it can be used on any surface treated with Fiddes Hard Wax Oil, including floors, furniture, table tops and kitchen worktops.
Alternatively, Fiddes Wood Surface Cleaner Spray can be used on these other surfaces.
Oiled or waxed floors and surfaces should not be cleaned with a steam cleaner or steam mop as this can damage the finish.
Scuffs, stains, marks and minor scratches can be quickly and easily repaired.

Have used this before to blend a new oak block work top with an old limed oak kitchen Liked it so much we have ordered more to use on some oak bookcases to give a nice drift-wood effect. 2 coats are quite enough - a third starts to get too white and opaque.
Not have used it but looks good
Easy to apply and gave a great finish
Lightened the train really nicely without being too opaque, exactly what we wanted
Started off with a battered orangey old floor, but after a bit of elbow grease removing remains of old wax, I used this wax oil and am absolutely delighted! Looks superb. Easy to use dries quickly, couldn't be happier.
Good adherence, versatile application and consistent quality
We're renovating our 130 year old stone house. I am sanding each room as we go with my trusty random orbital sander - I don't want a factory perfect finish, I want to see a bit of history on those boards. The wood is pine; using Fiddes natural coloured hard wax oil on them set the latent orange tones on fire. It was a shock. So now I'm using the Onyx black - the result is an ashy dark brown with a few gold highlights. It looks brilliant. Fiddes Hardwax Oil is so easy to apply - I brush on to work it into the grain and the floorboard gaps then wipe it off. And it goes such a long way so is really economical. It will always be my floor finish of choice.
We've used lots of different oils from the Fiddes range and they are all great
Great coverage with one coat and colours as it says on the tin!
Very hard wearing, high quality product. I used this to restore Douglas Fir floor boards, in a property that dates from 1745. Delighted with the results and would definitely recommend.
Great paint so nice to put on leaves a nice finish
Dried quickly to leave a superb finish. Definitely use this again.
I love Fiddes products. As expected, this was easy to use and apply, and dried reasonably quickly.
Used this to refinish an old oak wardrobe as the polyurethane varnish was peeling off. Never liked the plastic-y feel of the varnish so after some research this seemed like the right product, and I'm incredibly happy. Very pleasing to the touch and when applied with a non-abrasive white Scotch-Brite pad instead of a brush it's astoundingly economical. With 2 coats I ended up using a tiny fraction of the 1l tin. Eager to spruce up more furniture with it!
Product brilliant when used with Purdy synthetic brushes.
Just a small amount of this wax is needed to impart a beautiful, antique wood hue and character. It is, however, quite difficult to apply evenly; the first coat has turned out a bit patchy - a second coat is definitely required.
Not a tint - really opaque white on second application and looked uneven- didn't look good.
Thank you for the feedback on the Sample sachet. With these sachets it is important to manipulate the sachet in your hands for a few minute to ensure the pigment is evenly dispersed through the oil, particularly with whites.
It is worth taking some time to try various test areas for a white finish as they can often be difficult to get right, when you do however they can look stunning and we do have a very helpful Blog on white finishes. http://www.wood-finishes-direct.com/blog/beautiful-interior-white-wood-finishes-for-dreamy-interiors/

Goes on very easily with minimal fuss. Provides a great finish every time. Would happily use again any time
Excellent product that looks great It's hard wearing and really forms a protective layer over the wood
was not quite sure how to apply this product. Looked how to apply this product on youtube which was a great help, The fiddes hard wax oil needed two coats which has given my doors a fantastic finish they have made some cheap pine doors look like expensive ones so pleased with the results, I had been looking for a product for a long time for my doors did not know wood finishes direct was out there until I went to the Kent county show so glad we found them.
