Barn wood effect is a wood aging stain which creates a natural silver-grey finish that highlights wood graining.
It can be used alone for a more discrete effect or with the tannic activator, which enhance the reactivity of the wood and strongly emphasize the aging effect.
The resulting colour of Barn wood effect may vary from one species to another. It goes from brownish to greyish, black or greenish. The tone of the colour can be adjusted by varying the dilution ratio.
It can be used on planned, brushed or rough wood.
