How To

This butcher block counter is solid Walnut. To seal it, I used Howdy-Do Hemp Seed Oil.

It is such an amazing product to get a natural finish on raw wood. The applicator pads are a must when using this.

I thought I would need multiple bottles to finish this entire surface, but I was wrong. I have 2+ coats and still on my first bottle. A little goes a long way!

1. Start with a clean, dry surface. Clean first with White Lightning if you haven’t already.

2. Apply a small amount of oil to your surface using a cloth or brush.

3. Rub gently until it is absorbed by the raw wood or chalk mineral paint.

4. Allow 2 hours to dry.

5. Apply 2-4 coats if desired for additional sheen and protection.

6. Wipe excess after 12 hours.

    Hi, can hemp oil be used on my teal seat/bench in my shower? If so will the hemp oil seal it?

    Thank you

    I’m using hemp oil over caviar on my kitchen countertops, how many coats should I use? Can I cover with paper to protect for the 30 day curing. Are they going to be tough enough to stay fairly nice looking since I didn’t use Gator?

    1. Dixie Belle Paint Company says:

      Hi Mary! You can do one or two coats. Be certain to follow the steps on the packaging for each coat. We don’t recommend covering with paper because it could potentially stick to the countertops. As far as durability after they cure, they should be tough. However, Gator Hide is water repellant.

    I’ve used hemp oil. If I decide to use gator hide instead, what do I do to prep the countertop. I painted caviar and now I think I’d like gator instead of hemp oil. A dealer suggested hemp, but now I think it won’t be tough enough.

    1. Dixie Belle Paint Company says:

      Hi Kathy! If you’ve already painted your countertops with Caviar, you are ready for Gator Hide. Be sure to apply in thin coats, allowing it to dry for 2 hours between coats. We recommend 3 coats of Gator Hide for the water repellant finish.
