Black Sheep Steel uses Owatrol Oil to finish sculptures

We love seeing our customers hard work finished with an Owatrol product. This time it is our popular Owatrol Oil that has been used to protect Paul from Black Sheep Steel’s sculptures.

Here’s what he had to say about using it on his work;

I only discovered Owatrol about a year ago and it is just amazing. Wish I had known about it earlier!
I make decorative and sculptural pieces from steel and Owatrol gives a lovely chestnut colouring to my rusted work and stops any further rusting. I’ve used it to coat whole pieces that are designed to be outside in the elements, but also selectively with colours and rust to give a varied finish and one off patina.


We think you will agree, his work is beautiful! Thank you for choosing Owatrol Oil.

Anti-corrosive rust inhibitor Owatrol Oil

Owatrol Oil is a versatile, highly penetrating air drying oil that can be used alone or added to paint. When used alone as a rust inhibitor it provides a tough, flexible finish, driving out excess moisture and air; displacing it from rusted metal, so stopping rust dead in its tracks.

Owatrol Oil penetrates through the rusted metal to the sound metal below, isolating it and protecting it from further rusting. As it is a penetrating oil it can be used directly on the rusted surfaces – as it drives out moisture and air and stabilises the metal to protect it from future damage.

It can be used on on a wide variety of things such as;

  • Steel structures, railings, pipes, grills, stairs etc
  • Machinery, engine parts, trailers etc
  • Hulls, tanks etc
  • Horizontal and vertical surfaces
