Additional information

Surface Preparation

Ensure all surfaces to be stained are sound, clean, dry and free from dust, grease, polish or any other surface contaminant.

Remove any resins and natural oils using White Spirit.

Sound, existing varnish should be rubbed down with fine waterproof abrasive paper, rinsed thoroughly and allowed to dry.

Do not prepare the surface using steel wool.

Avoid the inhalation of dust. Wear a suitable face mask if dry sanding.

Special precaution should be taken during surface preparation of pre 1960s paint surfaces over wood and metal as they may contain harmful lead.


  • Stir thoroughly before use.
  • Apply two or more coats of varnish evenly, by good quality brush along the wood grain as required, paying particular attention to the end grain.
  • Do not overlap the brush strokes.
  • On bare of new wood the first coat can be thinned with up to 10% clean water, followed by two further coats of undiluted woodstain.
  • Do not apply when temperature is bellow 10˚C or when rain is imminent.

Note: The final colour will depend on the original colour of the wood and the number of coats applied.

Clearing Up
