Littlefair’s wood dye/stains are carefully bottled in the North West of England using the unique formulae created by Mr Littlefair.

At Littlefair’s we pride ourselves on providing quality products and the best personal customer service.  If you have any questions regarding our products or how to apply them, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

DRIFTWOOD can be used on smooth planed, rough sawn or pressure treated timber, both indoors and on external wood such as garden buildings, fences and gates.  The more textured or grainy the surface, the greater the effect.  So, it’s great for distressed or re-claimed wood, from small craft items to large structures.

Mr Littlefair wanted to create a product that would bypass the many and varied methods of producing a ‘driftwood’ effect, most of which are somewhat laborious and frustrating.  He wanted to create a product that would give a ‘salty’ weathered, driftwood appearance with a single, liberal brush coat. 

Instructions: Aim to apply the dye as an even, wet film, rather than brushing back and forth.  The wood should look as if you’ve painted it grey for a short time as it begins to penetrate your wood.  Once applied, simply allow the dye to soak in and dry **avoid the temptation to brush it again**.

Our online photographs for this product are of quite ‘grainy’ pine floorboards sanded with 60 grit abrasive.  Applying the product to a hardwood, such as oak, will result in a more uniform grey look.  

Please experiment first!  Always produce a test piece of wood, prepared in the same manner as your intended project.

Please note that the 'weathered' look shown in the picture represents Driftwood applied to rough pine, finished in our water based Extra Strong Varnish (Matt).  

Coverage: Approximately 12 square metres per litre (one coat).
