Treatex Colour Tones have been designed to give you a beautiful range of colours with which you can change how your floors, doors, stairs and worktops look and feel, without hiding the grain or the natural beauty of the wood. This allows you to match the colours in your home when every piece of wood is different, being that every tree is unique. Treatex Colour Tones penetrate deep into the wood and enhance its natural beauty, manufactured on a base of natural sustainable raw materials and then completed with natural pigments used to colour the oils.
Clear Hardwax Oil must always be used as the final coat when Natural Hardwax Oil or Colour Tones are applied*

Check out the video below on how to apply Treatex Colour Tones (Natural in this case):
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 brushed or rolled on. To ensure an even colour, remove excess product from the surface with a lint free cloth. 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! Once dry, seal with two coats of Treatex Clear Hardwax Oil which is available in 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.
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 to Treatex Nautral Hardwax Oil instead of Clear Hardwax Oil (see: Treatex Hardwax Oil Natural).
