super simple... just soap and water.
I was able to create the look of years of "aging" on brand new cedar wood garage doors in just a few hours using Weatherwood Reclamation Reactive Stain and Waterproofer. It's simple to use, water based, and no VOC. If you're looking to create instant patina on new wood, this is your product! It also works on previously finished wood but the prep is different. Find more information and some great video on their website.
Up next, I've finally finished the tutorial for the Lime putty stucco "German Schmear" that I did on our red brick! Look for a post on that process and a few photos on Monday.
Thanks so much for reading!
