If you have ever seen modern-day oil cloth, you'll know that it is a waterproof plasticky fabric that is mostly used to make tablecloths or similar.

Well, traditionally, oil cloth was a bit different and was simply cloth impregnated with oil.

This meant that the fabric stayed almost the same after the waterproofing process, rather than feeling like plastic.


The oil used to waterproof fabric is boiled linseed oil, and if you click the photo below you will find the written instructions. If you want the video tutorial instead, please scroll down the page:
