Additional Advice:

Osmo Polyx®-Oil Tints should not be considered as a product for staining timber, rather as a finish that will create an even tone to a timber's grain. The final appearance will be largely influenced by the colour of your timber. The application of additional coats of Osmo Polyx®-Oil Tints to deepen the colour is not recommended. Where a deeper colour tone is required, we recommend using one of the Osmo Woodwax Finish Transparent or Osmo Oil Stain colours instead. Best results are achieved with timbers such as oak, pine, cypress, spruce, and larch.

A trial is always recommended first to determine suitability.

One coat (maximum two coats are possible on softer woods) is sufficient to produce a durable, faintly coloured finish. After the tint is dry, apply a final coat of one of the clear Osmo Polyx®-Oils.

Factors such as the original colour of your timber may mean the desired depth of colour has not been achieved.

On cork, it will be necessary to apply 3 or 4 coats to achieve the same effect, as cork is so porous.
