Artisan Stain & Seal is a one step stain and sealer. It is water-based and water-resistant and can be used to stain and seal raw timber, refresh precoated timber or even as a glaze over painted finishes. VOC free and virtually odourless, Stain & Seal can be applied with a damp sponge, brush or short nap roller. Depth of colour can be increased with additional layers. Different effects can be achieved by layering different shades of Stain & Seal.
How to use: we recommend sanding and cleaning with Artisan Easy Scrub to ensure that the surface is clean and free from dirt, wax, oil, or flaking paint. Apply Stain&Seal with a sponge, working well into the grain and then finishing in long strokes with the grain. Surface may be lightly misted with water to ensure smooth coverage. Normal drying time is 20-30 minutes, and the surface can be recoated after 2-hours. Sand with 400+ grit sandpaper between coats for a silky smooth finish. Leave to cure for seven days for best results. To use as a glaze: apply to carved detail, pushing well into detail and wipe away excess using a damp cloth. Coverage: Approximately 6–10 square metres per litre, depending on application technique and surface roughness
