How to apply Precolor Easy to furnitureUpdated 6 months ago

Consult the TDS prior to using Precolor Easy. 

Materials needed

Application process


  1. Sand according to industry guidelines. Finish with screening net 100 to 150, the color intensity depends on the sanding method used. When renovating, you must remove all the residues from previous treatments completely (varnish, oil, wax, etc.). 
  2. Vacuum the surface.
  3. Clean using Raw Wood Cleaner.
  4. Allow the surface to dry completely.


  1. Stir the Precolor Easy thoroughly and regularly with a stirring stick. 
  2. Apply an amount of Precolor Easy with a brush and spread out using a red applicator pad. Wipe out evenly with a lint-free cloth. Work in small areas to avoid overlapping. For smaller objects and corners you can also use a mouse pad applicator.
  3. Allow the surface to dry for approximately 12 hours. The exact drying time depends on the foundation, moistening, temperature, and ventilation. 
  4. After drying, break the raised wood fibers with a red Scrubby Pad and vacuum afterward.
  5. Apply Oil Plus 2C. Please consult the technical data sheet of the oil for a correct application. Be careful, in combination with Precolor Easy it is best to use a white applicator pad instead of a beige or red one when applying the oil! 

Clean up

  1. Clean your tools using water, or Raw Wood Cleaner.
