New wood application:
Prepare the surface of the wood by sanding with 180 grit sandpaper. Mix varnish well before and during application and apply with a soft cotton rag or foam brush in quick and light coats. Allow surface to completely dry 2-4 hours before applying additional coats. Lightly sand with 400 grit sandpaper between coats.
Repair | Maintenance:
Prepare the surface by cleaning with mineral spirits or turpentine, lightly sand with 400 grit sandpaper and re-coat referring to the instructions above.
Clean application tools immediately with mineral spirits or turpentine. Properly dispose of rags, applicators and waste.
Coverage | Thinning:
