From now on we will be sealing all of our live edge artwork with the Osmo UV Protection Oil. This will provide a protection to the wood, because wood is a natural material that darkens or ‘tans’ over time. It is made for exterior use, which will give that much more protection to your artwork indoors. The best part about this is that the Osmo oil is made with raw renewable resources so we can help reduce the impact on our planet!
From Osmo website:
“Osmo UV-Protection Oil Extra is a satin-matt, natural oil based and microporous finish, does not crack, flake, peel or blister. It is water and dirt resistant, moisture regulating and reduces wood swelling and shrinkage. The natural oils enhance the natural character and tone of the wood.”
