Barn Wood Effect gives an aged effect to wood, graying it and bringing out the grain. It is ideal to give a gray effect on most woods, imitating the wood of barns aged by time. It can only be used on its own on some hardwoods and on white cedar (according to our tests). For other species, prime the surface with Tannin Activator. The activator accentuates the reactivity of the wood, modifies the color and considerably increases the effect. The shades obtained with Barn Wood Effect vary according to the wood species (from brownish, to gray, to black and greenish) and the intensity of the shades can be adjusted by changing the dilution ratio. The use of Tannin Activator increases the aging process and modifies the color. It can be used on planed, brushed or untreated wood.
Wood must be free from any finish. Apply activator if necessary and allow it to dry.
Dilute with water. The ratio can vary between 1 part of products for 5 to 30 parts of water, depending on the wood essence and the desired effect.
Shake the product well.
For interior use oil, wax or varnish.
For outdoor use, use our colourless EVO-Nature self-sealing stain or Ligna Exteria oil. The product raises the grain of the wood so lightly sand with a nylon pad or an abrasive 220 before applying the finish.
The use of coloured oil makes it possible to create effects of superposition of very interesting hues.
