I've just caught up with on Bean's thread on finishing an oak dining table.

I saw demo at a wood show years ago of a product called Patina made by Langlow (http://www.palacechemicals.co.uk). Not easy to get hold of, I get mine from a local decorators merchants (Brewer's).

I used it on my own oak table 10 years ago and it still looks as it did when first applied. We polish it once in a blue moon with a household furniture spay with beeswax. It is water resistant and heat proof.

I have never seen this product advertised nor do I hear of it mentioned in this or any other forum.

This link points to a chandler's who has a more detailed description.

Has anyone else used it? What do you think of it?

Andy,

Is that the same stuff as Screwfix sells? Keep meaning to try it, but you know how it goes; the order reaches the free delivery figure without its help, so it gets kicked off :D

Cheers, Alf

I do wish I knew what you are talking about. Is that one of those things for tracing over a picture to produce a copy?

That's a pantograph isn't it? :? Iambic pentameters are explained here and a lot more clearly than my English teacher did it too. I'd love to finish with a dazzling display of same, composed by yours truly, but blank verse ain't really my thing. I could try a limerick I suppose... :roll:

Cheers, Alf

Ah yes, I understand now. If this explanation is more clear than your pedagogue's then I take it you failed the exam?

You two talk some rubbish!
I used Patina on my workbench, after applying a couple of coats of oil. It looks really nice, but haven't had the guts to use it on anything else yet. (stuck in my ways, me?)
Cheers,
Philly :D

Great thread.

To return to the subject of patina. I've used it all over the house (timber framed) for as long as I can remember. Interior or exterior. rough k beams & even some furniture.IT IS FAB!!!!!.
Dixons used to sell it but no longer do.
screwfix do not sell it.
i'm just in the process of trying to order it direct from Palace chemicals.

hope this helps.
