Preparing Surfaces for Application
Before applying Osmo Country Shades, it's important to properly prepare the surface:
- Clean the Wood: Ensure the wood surface is free from dirt, grease, and any old finishes.
- Sand the Surface: Lightly sand the surface to remove any rough spots and to open the wood pores for better absorption of the treatment.
- Wipe Clean: Remove all sanding dust with a clean cloth.
How to Apply Osmo Country Shades
Applying Osmo Country Shades is straightforward, but it’s important to follow the correct procedure for the best results:
- Stir Well: Before use, stir the shade thoroughly to ensure a consistent colour.
- Test First: Always do a patch test on a small area to ensure the colour and finish are as expected.
- Apply Thinly: Using a brush, apply the first coat thinly and evenly along the wood grain.
- Let Dry: Allow the first coat to dry completely, typically taking 8-10 hours.
- Second Coat: If necessary, apply a second coat for a more intense colour and enhanced protection.
- Final Dry: Allow the final coat to dry thoroughly.
