How To: Wet Sand with Hemp Oil

I'm always amazed by all of the uses for Miss Mustard Seed's Hemp Oil. It's my fave product in this line, by far. You can paint over it to get a chippy look. It revives old, worn wood. I've used it on my leather boots (and now they look brand new!). Jeff uses it to seal the bread boards he makes. It also can be used as a top coat...and on the piece below, I wet sanded with it.

I snagged the piece below on Craigslist for a steal. It looks like someone's puppy had a good time with a couple of the legs (they were a little chewed up), but other than that, it was in great shape. This piece is really tall and leggy.


I applied two coats of Typewriter milk paint with Bonding Agent, because I didn't want any chipping. I then rubbed on some Hemp Oil and used a fine softback sanding sponge to sand. Basically, you just sand the hemp oil into the surface. Not only does this eliminate dust, it leaves a smooth, buttery finish. I don't break out this technique very often and I don't know why. This piece feels amazing!

I really like to use this technique when using the darker colors, like Typewriter and Artissimo. The oil deepens these colors and just makes them so rich looking.

The hemp oil provides a water resistant surface, which can be cleaned with soap and water. This beauty is going to make for a beautiful entryway table!
