Instructions of use for Uula Glazing Oil

Instructions of use for Uula Glazing Oil. Uula Glazing Oil is designed for new and old untreated wooden surfaces, as well as surfaces treated with products that do not form a membrane or hard coating that might prevent the absorption of the stain. It is suited to doors, architraves, furniture and floors in dry interior spaces as well as walls and furniture in covered exterior spaces. The durable oil-based stain leaves the grain of the wood visible and protects the treated surface from moisture and dirt. It can also be used as a binder for glazing, graining and decorative paints, or as an additional coat over varnish and linseed oil paints to reduce the gloss level.

Instructions of use for Uula Glazing Oil

Always choose colours in the space and lighting the paint is intended for. Lighting and gloss level of the paint affect the perception of colour. With translucent treatments the roughness of the material, the variety of wood, the previous colour and quality of the treatment affects the end result. Reserve and mix enough stain for large surfaces to avoid potential colour variation in different batches. Paint a test patch on a separate piece of similar material to ensure the colour is correct. Please note that the stain attains its true colour once it has dried properly.

Stir the stain well before and during painting. Look after the painting environment by protecting untreated surfaces with masking tape, paper, cardboard or protective plastic. The stain can be used clear for freshening up varnished surfaces of old furniture by rubbing the stain on with a lint-free cloth and allowing it to dry for 4-5 hours.
