Littlefair’s Exterior Range Woodland Colours are made using a unique formula which allows the dye to both penetrate and bond with the wood to create an enduring, light fast depth of colour. The dye becomes part of the wood and will not flake or peel.
They are intended to mingle pleasantly into their surroundings, particularly garden and outdoor areas. The dyes have been made a little stronger in colour to overcome the background green appearance often seen on pressure treated wood, such as decking, fence panels and garden buildings. A single liberal coat may well give sufficient coverage and depth of colour, but a further coat or coats will deepen the shade.
These water based exterior wood dyes are safe to use for you, your pets and the environment. They can also be used indoors if a particular colour is suitable for your project and they can be further finished with any of the Littlefair's wax polishes, oils or varnishes.
Drying Time: The dye will dry quickly in warm conditions and can be re-coated, if required after approximately 1-2 hours.
Coverage: These colours should be applied quite liberally and should cover approximately 8-10m² per litre, for one liberal coat, but more will be required on rougher sawn wood. If you’re measuring your decking remember to allow for the greater surface area due to the grooves in the boards and the edge surfaces of the wood.
