Painting exterior woodIf the wood is previously varnished or painted it needs to be sanded back to raw wood. Once the surface is nice and smooth and you have removed the old varnish, you will need to wipe all the sanding dust off the surface.
If you are painting the wood with a colour, then first apply a white primer base coat of Paintcors Unisub universal undercoat to the wooden surface and allow 6 hours drying in warm conditions. A good Quality enamel or acrylic like Paintcors Higlo or Elegance can then be applied as a top coat.
If you wish to varnish the wood then it can be primed with Paintcors Woodfirst which can be made into a variety of different coloured stains. Once the wood has been primed and stained if you wish, you are now ready to apply your clear coat of varnish over the top. Paintcor offers a hard wearing varnish called Woodluv or an alternative called Woodcoat for exterior applications
Remember to allow drying times between coats.
