To apply Woca Driftwood Lye-
- The unfinished woodwork must be clean, dry and finely sanded (grit 100-120) before applying lye. Test lye, prior to full use, on a less visible area to check the compatibility of the surface with the product.
- Shake the container well and pour the lye into a plastic bucket. It is important that no pigments are left in the container. Stir regularly during the application to prevent the pigments from settling to the bottom.
- Apply an even coat of the lye with the WOCA Applicator, a nylon brush or roller lengthwise along the grain. Apply at least 1 L of lye per 110 sq. ft. of wood. Leave wood to dry for approx. 8-12 hours at 68°F. De-nib standing fibres and remove excess pigments with a medium e.g. green or maroon machine polishing pad. Remove the sanding dust with a vacuum cleaner.
- Finish the wood surface with a WOCA oil.
