Overview

L.Co’s uses raw tung oil and organic iron oxide pigments which allow the color to penetrate deep into the wood grain for a more clear and natural look. Color Oil is easy to apply, mix and match shades of color and is ideal for coloring unfinished wood furniture, hardwood floors, cabinets and trim.

With 8 colors to choose from, you can find the right shade to match your project. L.Co Color Oils can also be mixed together for an even more perfect match. The tung oil in L.Co Color Oil penetrates deep into wood and seals fibers beneath the surface to achieve a durable, hand-rubbed appearance. L.Co Color Oil is easy to clean, maintain or spot repair and is safe to use on children’s toys and furniture as well as food contact surfaces.
