Langlow patina for natural timber
A question about Langlow patina.

I’m trying my hand at painting furniture and have come across your website. I have used your tip of using Patina on natural wood but it doesn’t seem to look glossy like yours does in your painted pine table picture.
I have only applied one coat so far not sure if this could be the reason?
Also can you tell what what the consistency should be like, I left it in the sun and it completely melted and has now set to a gel like consistency is this correct?
Any advise would be much appreciated!
you are on the right track. 2 very thin coats of Patina will do the trick.
Apply sparingly in circles one plank at a time then lay off in one direction. It is quite a rigorous process, I put a lot of weight behind it, it has to be thin.
The first coat will soak in. It should be hard though before the second coat goes on. Minimum 4 hours between coats.
It is a gel, so that sounds about right, never melted it myself 🙂
Leave 24 hours before using. After a couple of days, you will have a very tough coating. Used it for many years, literally only one failure, which was never resolved despite best brains at Patina. You can add stainer to it for a tinted finish. It goes yellow if applied as a sealer over paint though!
Please share it on Twitter, Facebook, or print it out for reference. Thanks.
