I have a question about an     and the product I’m using is   
  • Q: Can I change from an existing coating to Wet Look Deck?

    A. Yes. Timber coated with stain or oil can be coated with Wet Look Deck after the surface has weathered. Test if the surface is ready by sprinkling water onto the timber. If the water absorbs into the timber it is suitable for coating. If the water beads, further weathering, sanding or stripping is required. Painted or varnished surfaces need to be taken back to bare timber by stripping or sanding. Prepare timber for coating with Woodclean.

  • Q: Can I apply Grey Look Deck direct to grey weathered timber?

    A. Grey Look Deck is perfect over grey wetathered timber. However you must ALWAYS clean the timber with a suitable timber cleaner, such as Feast Watson Woodclean, before applying Grey Look Deck. Woodclean will remove any dead timber fibres and surface contaminants (including dirt) that could impede the even absortion of Grey Look Deck. It will also remove oil, mould or stains from your weathered timber- helping you to achieve the best possible finish.

  • Q: What is the difference between Feast Watson Floor Paint and other ‘paints’?

    Feats Watson Floor paint has been specially designed to be trafficable and provide superior mark and wear resistance. With three coats it is a durable, hard wearing floor coating. Paints like Dulux Wash & Wear or Dulux Weathershield that have been formulated for broad wall application will NOT withstand foot traffic.

  • Q: Can Feats Watson Floor paint be used on Concrete?

    A: NO. Floor paint is suitable for interior timber floors only.

  • Q: Is Feast Watson Glass Finish suitable for use on exterior timber?

    A: NO. Exposure to direct sunlight may cause Glass Finish to yellow over time. The yellowing does not impact the performance of Glass Finish. However, if the yellow colouration is undesirable do not expose finished project to direct sunlight. See Feast Watson 'How to apply Glass Finish" for detailed usage guide.

  • Q: What is the difference between Liming White Floor Finish and Liming White Stain & Varnish?

    A: Both Liming White Floor Finish and Liming White Stain & Varnish will provide one-step ‘soft milky look’ and durable protection, whilst allowing the grain pattern of the timber to remain visible. As water based products, the finish will not yellow over time as is common with more traditional solvent based Liming solutions. The key difference between the two liming products is that Liming White Floor Finish is specially formulated for flooring, and with three coats is a durable hard wearing floor coating. Liming White Stain & Varnish is designed for furniture and accessories. It is NOT designed to be trafficable, and NOT suitable or Flooring.

  • Q: Do I need to apply a top coat after I stain Timber?

    A: For exterior timber, No. Feast Watson Decking Stain and Timber & Deck Stain do not require a top coat. However, for a satin or gloss finish on vertical surfaces Timber & Deck Stain can be over coated with Weatherproof Varnish (Exterior). Note: Weatherproof Varnish is NOT suitable for coating areas subject to foot traffic. For interior timber: Yes. Feast Watson Prooftint Stain does require a top coat of a clear varnish to protect the surface. Two to three coats of Feast Watson Clear Varnish clear are required for durable protection.

  • Q: Which Feast Watson products can I mix Feast Watson Prooftint Traditional Stain into?

    A: Feast Watson Prooftint can be added to the following Feast Watson products, up to 10% mix ratio: Clear Varnish - Gloss, Satin and Matt; Fine Buffing Oil; Floorseal Oil; Mastertouch French Polish; Feast Watson Liming White (oil based); Prooftint Colour reducer; Timber Primer (also known as Fungishield); Tung Oil (also known as China Wood Oil); Sanding Sealer; Scandinavian Oil. Prooftint MUST NOT be added to Floorclear or FloorproofPro.
