I have used tung oil for years. I started with it straight which works but takes a long time to dry. Pete is right. warming both the oil and glass first helps. Warm dry air circulation helps speed the drying. Curt Brock's lust'er product is tung oil with solvents. It works well and can be aplied in several coats to achieve desired finish. It does not store well and tends to jell in the can unless you use alot of it.

To keep Liquid Lust'er from gelling in the can add marbles as you use it to displace the air. Leaving air in the can is what causes it to gel.

I believe this is in the directions on the package. I didn't come up with this myself.

Does the Luster yellow a bit over time?

My can of luster went bad over a year being opened only once. Seemed like a good product but expensive if your not using it all the time.

For kiln work you can use a lead bearing overglaze, but it does not hold up to the weather and will craze and flake off over time. It also matures above the strain point so if the work is 3D it may move.
