Prooftint Colour Reducer

Dilution Base for Prooftint Traditional Stain

A specially formulated dilution base for Prooftint Traditional Stain. Using Prooftint Colour Reducer enables the creation of lighter, more subtle timber shades. When staining large areas such as floors, Prooftint Colour Reducer helps to distribute the stain, allowing more time for it to be spread, resulting in a consistent, even finish.

Prooftint Colour Reducer can be mixed with Prooftint at any ratio to achieve the desired colour strength.

surface preparation

Prepare new and previously coated timber as per the directions for Prooftint.

Application

Add Prooftint to Prooftint Colour Reducer at the required mixing ratio to achieve your desired colour and strength. Stir well and apply following Prooftint application instructions. 1 part Prooftint mixed with 1 part Prooftint Colour Reducer will provide appoximately half the strength of colour.

Test colour on an off-cut or inconspicuous area prior to staining the whole job to ensure satisfaction with colour choice. The dwell time before wiping excess, and the finishing clear coat will impact the final colour.

For Small Areas
For small and detailed areas, apply Prooftint and Reducer mix directly to the surface in the direction of the grain, by either brush or rag. Wipe off after 2 - 5 minutes depending on the depth of colour required. Allow to dry, then seal with Feast Watson Clear Varnish.

 

For Large Areas
For large areas including floors, dilute Prooftint in Prooftint Colour Reducer which will give more working time to distribute the stain evenly. Apply with a rag, brush or Feast Watson Floor Finish Applicator in the direction of the grain. Wipe off excess after a period of time determined by the desired colour intensity. Allow to dry, then seal with Feast Watson Floorseal Oil, Feast Watson Floorclear or Feast Watson FloorProof Pro.
