This wood dye has been specially formulated to both penetrate and coat new and old bare wood to create that Police Public Call Box colour.
Create a fine finish: Water based wood dyes have many advantages and create the best possible colour tones but have a tendency to raise the grain. However, this problem is easily overcome – dampen the wood with water (a spray mist, sponge or cloth is suitable), allow to dry and complete by fine sanding the raised grain flat.
Create a ‘shabby-chic’ appearance: The dye will also work well on roughly sanded or sawn timber. Try it as a pale wash applied sparingly or build up a strong ‘chalky’ look with several coats.
Apply liberally and evenly along the grain using a good quality paint brush.
You may like the look of a single coat. However, a light second coat will deepen the colour and mask unsightly grain or knots if a more uniform coverage is desired.
Coverage: Approximately 12 square metres per litre (one coat).
