Clean It

Remember to Prep the Surface
  • Wipe Down with denature alcohol mixed with water or with Krud Kutter®
    (TSP will cause wood based coatings to not adhere properly)

Prime It

with Retique It® Wood'n Primer
  • Brush, spray or roll on 2 coats of Retique It® Wood'n Primer
  • Make final strokes long in the direction you want the grain

Grain It

with Retique It® Wood'n Stain
If you want a smooth finish, you can skip this step. Your brush strokes will make a subtle grain.
  • Brush on a thin coat of Wood'n Stain™ in plank size sections
  • Pull the graining tool through each section while coat is still wet

Stain It

Apply Wood'n Stain™ over the grain
  • Brush on Retique It® Wood'n Stain
  • Just brush it on. DO NOT WIPE IT OFF like other stains
  • If you want a deeper finish, brush on more coats of Wood'n Stain™
