It penetrates deep into the wood and can be mixed together to obtain intermediate shades. This wood stain is easy to apply and with a new ethanol-based formula, it comes in a range of superb colours. We offer Antique Pine, Light Oak, Medium Oak, Teak, Walnut, Dark Oak, Georgian Mahogany and Ebony. It is used on new, old and reclaimed timbers.
How to use Liberon Spirit Wood Dye
Ensure the surface is clean, dry and free from any dust, dirt or any other surfaces contaminants. This dye is mainly used on unsealed bare woods.
Shake the dye tin very well before use and ensure you have enough stain to finish the work before starting or it may dry patchy. If more than one tin of dye is required to complete the work, mix the tins together to ensure a consistent colour.
Apply one moderate coat of Liberon Spirit Wood Dye with a lint-free cloth in the direction of the grain of the wood and then allow to fully dry. More coats can be applied to darken the wood but ensure it is full dry between coats. Leave for at least five hours between coats.
On some woods the second coat of stain may remove the first coat, so test a small area first.
When applying a French polish, Shellac sealer or varnish, be careful as over brushing may remove the stain.
Always do a test area before starting any project to assess product suitability and final finish. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions on the tin at all times.
