How to prepare your Timber Floor Stain & Varnish:
Final steps, here we go:
How to prepare new or bare timber/cork:
Punch exposed nails below the surface. If you have any holes and imperfections, they should be filled with timber putty.
Sand timber to an even, smooth surface. Remember to vacuum and wipe to remove dust.
NOTE: Prepare uncoated cork tiles in accordance with the supplier’s recommendation.
For best results, seal uncoated or tannin rich timber with Feast Watson Proofseal and allow to dry thoroughly before applying Timber Floor Stain & Varnish.
Previously Coated Timber
How to prepare previously coated timber:
Sand back your coated surface back to bare timber. Remember to remove all sanding dust before coating!
How to apply your Timber Floor Stain & Varnish Liming White:
Let’s get that white, airy feel…
Without introducing any bubbles, use a flat blade stirrer and thoroughly stir your product both before and during application.
Note: If you are coating a large space and need more than one Timber Floor Stain & Varnish colour, mix all together in a large container.
Make sure you love your colour choice! Test your colour on an off-cut to ensure you love your colour.
Using the Feast Watson Floor Finish Applicator, brush or short nap mohair roller, apply your first coat. Work along 3-4 floorboards at a time, maintaining a wet edge to prevent lap marks and lay off in the direction of the grain. And remember, avoid introducing any bubbles!
