Liming White Floor Finish

Water Based Liming Stain & Varnish

Liming White Floor Finish combines a traditional lime stain with a professional clear polyurethane for one-step ‘soft milky white colour’ and durable protection for interior timber floors.

The semi-transparent coating adds rich colour whilst allowing the grain pattern of timber to remain visible.

As the formula is water based, Liming White Floor Finish will not yellow over time and you can complete your project in a single day.

Apply one coat for a subtle pale colour, or multiple coats to build the opacity and whiteness.

surface preparation

New or bare timber/cork
Punch exposed nails below the surface. Holes and imperfections should be filled with timber putty. Sand timber to an even, smooth surface. Vacuum and wipe to remove dust. Prepare uncoated cork tiles in accordance with the supplier's recommendation.

For best results, seal uncoated or tannin rich timber with Feast Watson Proofseal and allow to dry thoroughly before applying Liming White Floor Finish.

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


Proofseal Floorseal Oil


Stir Liming White Floor Finish thoroughly before and during use with a flat blade stirrer, being careful 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 coating the whole job to ensure satisfaction with colour choice.

Apply with a Feast Watson Floor Finish Applicator, brush or short nap mohair roller. Work along the whole length of 3 to 4 floorboards at a time, maintaining a wet edge to prevent lap marks and lay off in the direction of the grain. Take care to not introduce bubbles.

This is a three coat flooring system. If the desired colour is achieved in less than three coats, complete the system with a suitable water based floor coating.

Stronger colour can be developed with further coats of Liming White Floor Finish. Continue applying coats by the above procedure until the desired colour is achieved.


Regularly clean using Floorclean. Monitor the surface for signs of colour loss or surface defects. When floor requires an additional coat of Liming White Floor Finish, apply as per the instructions for Previously Coated Timber
