Tung Oil

someone may come along and correct me but if the tung oil is well cured you should be able to lightly sand the body, put a sealer on it and paint away. lacquer is the only thing that i can think of that might react with it. whatever type paint and sealer you use you can do a spot test and see if it crackles or gums up.

good luck with it.

I use lacquer over tung oil on a regular basis on the furniture that I build. As long as it's reltively dry I've had gew problems.

If you're new to this stuff I'd suggest using the reattlecans of Deft. Does a good job, is simple, looks great.

You've had "gew" problems?

Was that supposed to be "goo" or "few"? :D
