I Forge Iron

Making Some Blacksmith Juice or Goop Protective Coating For Finishing Forged Items

Recommended Posts

I mix a quart of linseed oil and blo in a one gallon metal paint can with a lid. I add anywhere from a walnut to a golf ball sized chunk of beeswax, cut up for quicker melting. Put this on your forge fire and give it a little heat. If it flashes, remove the paint can from your forge with your poker or rake and put on the lid. Remove lid and put it back on your forge. When the beeswax is melted, pour back into the two quart cans. Done. Takes about 15 minutes and apply with a rag. Depending on your workload, it will last for months. 

If you want a paste, add more beeswax.
