Oneshot over mahogany finished with Sikkens "Cetol"

Post by John Lennig » Thu Jun 24, 2004 11:57 pm

Hi folks, I have an older ChrisCraft cruiser to letter tomorrow, it's finished with Sikkens Cetol oil finish. The Sikkens website says of the product "it breathes"...it sounds like an oil finish. I'd be using oneshot, letter with outline and shade, brushes, of course!!

Any experince with this, anybody. Thanks in advance.

I use it also over gold leaf with a few drops of hardener. don't you just love the old wooden boats?

Well, they did end up putting the finish coats of Cetol on the stern before I lettered it. Satin finish. The one shot went great, sunny day, but angle of boat kept sun off surface. Great day to be alive!

Thanks for the replies...
