I've used linseed oil and it worked well. I also painted my tipi and the painted areas shed the water right well.

Boiled linseed oil will shellac on its own, and the turpentine simply thins it so speeds up the process. If soybean oil doesn't dry like boiled linseed oil..., then no it won't work. The turpentine doesn't cause the drying.

what is the ratio of boiled linseed oil to turpentine?

Anybody got a recipe for PC waterproofing?

I have some hemp canvas I need to waterproof. Do you treat it before or after you have made the sack? Does it matter?

with the soybean oil i used a mix of 3 to 1,oil to turpentine. it turned out very well and did'nt make it overly heavy.
