I have purchased Saman Oil Based Hybrid Varnish, semi-gloss, for our bare pine window trim indoors. I want the grain to stand out and the wood to change to a more amber or yellow tone. I have placed a test board outside with two coats on and tape adjacent to see if there is contrast between the covered area and the uncovered. There is some change over about 5 days. I just wonder if anyone else has used the product and if I can expect that the change will effectively bring out the pleasurable details of the pine over time, or will it not change much indoors? Would anyone recommend a different product that is not toxic, easy to apply and would dry quickly to obtain my desired effect? We tried Minwax Woodsheen, rubbing stain and finish, Manor Oak, but it goes on blotchy, has too much red and detracts from the natural wood appearance.
