I need some advice. I made a 50/50 mix of pure tung oil (100% pure no filler) and mineral spirits. I put 2 coats on my walnut project allowing 2 days in between. Then 2 more days then minwax finishing paste wax. Light rubbing with 0000 steel wool in between each step. 7 days later the blotchy-ness is happening.
Did I not leave enough time for the tung oil to dry? Do I need to strip of the wax with mineral sprits and just stick to the oil mix? Hit with more wax and buff? Remove wax, re-oil, leave for long time and then rewax?
Help greatly needed.
