Stir the contents well and always check the shade before application.

Wipe on Method – Take a clean, lint free cotton cloth or sponge and apply in the direction of the wood grain where possible. Take care to remove any excess stain immediately with a separate, clean absorbent cloth, again following the direction of the grain pattern. To obtain a uniform colour, always wipe evenly, blending the stain over the whole surface area by exerting a degree of pressure when applying by hand. Leave to dry, and do not sand between coats.

Sponge Applicator Method – Use a 7inch (or wider) Paint Pad Applicator (available from hardware stores or Fiddes Website) and a wide bucket or paint tray. Saturate timber following the direction of the grain working out a few boards/areas at a time. Use a paint brush to blend in end boards and leave.

Application videos are available on the Fiddes Australia YouTube Channel.
