Clear Hardwax Oil must always be used as the final coat when Natural Hardwax Oil or Colour Tones are applied*
*Natural can be used as a top coat with Spruce Colour Tone to achieve a pure bright white (see: Hardwax Oil Natural).
Sand the surface to smooth bare wood using 80-120 grit sandpaper. Ensure that any previous finish has been fully removed. Remove dust, dirt and any other contaminates which may lead to uneven absorption of Colour Tones. Make sure the surface to be treated is thoroughly dry. Stir tins and ensure product is at room temperature before use. Enough Colour Tone should be purchased to complete the whole project and when more than one container is required it is advisable to mix them together before use. Various species of timbers will take colours differently, we strongly advise a small trial application prior to starting a project.
One coat of Colour Tone should be brushed or rolled on. A second coat of Colour Tone is usually unnecessary and will only slightly deepen the colour. To ensure an even colour and correct drying, remove excess product from the surface with a lint free cloth (failure to do so will result in extended drying and a potentially patchy finish). Allow to dry – maintaining warmth and ventilation will enable the surface to dry within 3-6 hours. If excess product is not removed from the surface, Colour Tones will not dry properly and may appear patchy. Once dry, seal with two coats of Treatex Hardwax Oil Ultra Clear which is available in Flat Matt, Matt, Satin or Gloss sheen levels. The top coats of Clear Hardwax Oil are applied to prevent the natural pigments in our Colour Tones from wearing.
Treatex Hardwax Oil Clear should be applied after using colour tones
Treatex Hardwax Oil Natural can be applied over Spruce Colour Tone to create a whiter finish
All of our Colour Tones can be mixed.
Treatex brushes and rollers are available. Alternatively, use a short gloss pile roller or good quality brush. Wet brushes and rollers can be cleaned using white spirit.
To speed up drying, raise room temperature and increase air flow by opening doors, windows and using a fan.
For a brighter white seal our Spruce Colour Tone with two coats of Treatex Hardwax Oil Ultra Natural instead of Clear Hardwax Oil (see: Treatex Hardwax Oil Natural).
