Liming White

Oil Based Liming Stain.

*Previously known as Liming Solution

An oil based liming stain which gives a soft, milky effect to timber. Liming White can be used neat to give a white finish, or it can be tinted with Feast Watson Prooftint to achieve a variety of pastel tones.

Liming White should be top coated with Feast Watson Clear Varnish, Scandinavian Oil, Floorseal Oil or Floorclear.

surface preparation

New Timber
Sand to a smooth surface and remove all sanding dust before coating. To achieve a super-smooth finish or if the timber grain is open or coarse, apply a coat of Feast Watson Sanding Sealer and sand back as per the directions.

Seal soft porous timbers, such as Pine, Meranti and Cedar with Feast Watson Timber Primer to ensure even absorption into the timber.

Previously Coated Timber
Previously coated surfaces need to be sanded back to bare timber. Remove all sanding dust before staining.

Timber Primer Proofseal Sanding Sealer


Stir thoroughly before and during application with a flat blade stirrer taking care not to introduce bubbles. If using more than one can of the same colour to complete a job, combine both cans and stir thoroughly.

Test colour on an off-cut or inconspicuous area prior to staining the whole job to ensure satisfaction with colour choice. Note that the dwell time before wiping excess, and the finishing clear coat will impact the final colour. Apply with a brush or Feast Watson Floor Finish Applicator in the direction of the grain. Wipe off excess with a soft, clean cloth after a period of time determined by the desired colour intensity (1-5 minutes).

Allow to dry for 8 hours. Evaluate the colour: stronger colour can be developed with further coats of Liming White. Continue applying coats by the above procedure until the desired colour is achieved.

When satisfied with the colour, a protective top coat is required. Note that oil based top coats may cause the surface to yellow over time.

Top Coating
Liming White must be dry before applying a top coat. For interior floors, apply Feast Watson Floorseal Oil or Feast Watson Floorclear as per the label instructions.

For all other interior timber (not floors) apply three coats of Feast Watson Clear Varnish as per label directions. 

Colour Tinting
Add up to 5% Prooftint to Liming White to create pastel tones. Add 50ml of Prooftint to a 1L can of Liming White. Apply the tinted mixture as per the above procedure.


Once Liming White has been top coated, Feast Watson Floorclean is ideal for cleaning the floor.  Use Feast Watson Mastertouch Polish  to rejuvenate the surface and Feast Watson Floorshine to rejuvenate and extend the life of tired, worn floors coated with Floorclear or Floorseal Oil.

To rejuvenate your interior furniture, polish sealed surfaces with Feast Watson Mastertouch Polish or buff with Feast Watson Fine Buffing Oil.
