For a smooth finish, use a smooth flat brush in long smooth strokes and water mister, you can sand lightly in between coats for a super smooth finish also use our liquid wax or hemp oil with wet & dry sandpaper to finish as a sealer.
For a textured rustic look, use criss cross brush strokes with a round or oval brush to give your piece added interest, any of our sealers can be used. In some cases, you may find some substrates may have tannin bleed-through. Should this happen, use our base & blocker to prevent further staining.
