Our beautiful Nordic eco stains are designed to be reminiscent of beautiful Nordic timber colours and finishes.
These stains can be used on sanded timber and also painted timber to give a wash of colour. The more layers you apply the less grain you will see through the stain.
These stains are self sealing, although applying hemp oil, beeswax or crystal clear can add extra protection. The stains dry very matte.
For best results when using as a stain, apply to freshly sanded timber. Nordic eco stain can be thinned with water to dilute the colour even more. Nordic stains can be intermixed to create a custom colour blend.
Nordic stains can also be used as a colour wash or glaze over painted surfaces to give a Scandi feel to your projects. You can transform just about anything!
Instructions for the best results using a table top as an example:
Step 1. Ensure your surface is clean and free of dust and/grease.
Step 2. Decant about 100ml of Scandi stain into a plastic dish or even a plastic cup. To this add about 30mls of water and mix this well.
Step 3. Wipe over your table top evenly with a damp cloth so your timber surface is just damp from the cloth, this will even out the porosity of the table and make your stain easier to apply. You can either use a wide brush or cloth to apply your stain.
Step 4.Wet your brush or cloth with water, if using a cloth, squeeze our excess water so the cloth is damp, same with your brush. Dunk this into your stain, now squeeze out excess stain out of cloth(this stain is not toxic and will not stain your hands) Now wipe the cloth evenly over your piece in long strokes with the wood grain. Be mindful of butting up to each swipe up the table with your next swipe(you don't want areas not stained). Now rinse your brush or cloth and wait for this layer to dry. It won't take long.
Step 5. Now we need to do a second coat of your stain mix. You should have ample left in your cup. Apply the stain again in the same way you applied the first coat, this time you don't need to dampen the table first.
Apply your second coat in long sweeps again trying to be as even and as straight as you can be. After this coat is dry, you may decide the colour is how you want it to be. If so let it dry and we are going to apply the Eggshell in exactly the same way. If you want the table darker, apply more stain(the same way as we have been).
