Pre Colour Easy
How long do I need to leave the Pre Colour Easy on before applying the oil?
We advise 12 hours, especially with the darker colours like Intense Black. However, this is dependant on temperature and conditions. Please check if there is any transfer or if there is still colour coming off before applying the oil.
Can I put a white oil over the Pre Colour Easy in Intense Black?
However, please be aware that the white oil may turn the pre coloured wood grey, instead of giving you that white grained look. Using a spatula to achieve the 'zebra' effect may be best!

Is it really required to let new wood age for 4-6 weeks before applying DuroGrit?
