Existing paint and varnishes should be removed with Rustin’s Strypit Paint and Varnish Stripper. Bare wood may be dyed before coating with Rustin’s Wood Dye. It is recommended that oak is first treated with Rustins Clear Advanced Wood Preserver to prevent dark staining caused by mould, inherent in oak. Do not apply Knotting

Application: Apply liberally with a clean rag or brush and wipe off the surplus oil after a few minutes. On exterior wood, the first coat should be applied liberally with a brush and allowed to dry without wiping.
