Milsurp Fan hooked me up with veterinary pine tar. I used it on some dry Polish & stripped Maadi AK furniture & was very happy. Very much a brown/red stain, but penetrates varying amounts, depends on the wood grain & temp vs time left on.
Vet pine tar smells bad, but not as bad as the Swedish has been reputed to be. BLO or varnish will seal up the unique odor.
I have not mixed BLO/PT, just used PT first, then sealed after.
