Circa 1850 Exterior Varnish is a clear, tough marine grade coating that protects and beautifies all exterior wood surfaces. Its unique polymerized tung oil formula provides a breathable water repellant surface. Rain and snow cannot penetrate the coating to damage the wood. Circa 1850 Exterior Varnish contains transparent absorbers to screen out UV rays and inhibit the graying and fading effects of the sun. It also incorporates a superior fungicide and mildewcide to increase performance. Made by Swing Paints.
Circa 1850 Exterior Varnish can be applied onto bare, stained or finished wood.
Sand new wood to obtain a smooth, uniform surface.
For existing woodwork or furniture, clean thoroughly to remove dirt and mildew. Stir contents thoroughly prior to and during application.
On bare wood, thin the first coat with 10-25% turpentine. Apply a thin coat of Circa 1850 Exterior Varnish using a pure bristle brush. Apply evenly with long strokes in the direction of the grain. Allow to dry for at least 24 hours. Remove all dust and apply a second or third coat as above.
Circa 1850 Exterior Varnish may be applied using compressed air sprayers.

This product goes on very easy. It doesn't run as easy as most varnishes. It smoothens itself out and needs very little sanding.

Applies nicely straight from the can and leveled off nicely as well.The sheen is a little glossier than described but for exterior this is not a problem.This is my first timing using this product so I will follow up later on it's performance but I am expecting very good results.Reasonably priced as well.

I used this product on outdoor benches I have built and on antique farm equipment I have restored. The product looks great, applies well and the prices is reasonable compared to other products out there. Now the proof is in the pudding after spending a new england winter outside.

We were looking for a good exterior varnish to use on carts for antique stationary engines. These products are just not readily available in our area. This varnish so far seems to be the best choice!

The best marine varnish I ever used on the exterior of a house.The gloss finish looks great no scratches from walking on them everyday and its going on 3 years.
