How to apply WoodCream to smooth woodUpdated a year ago

Consult the TDS prior to using WoodCream. 

Materials needed


Application process


  1. Apply in temperatures between 50°F – 80°F. Ensure that the vertical wood is dry and clean.
  2. In case of extremely soiled and oily wood or mildew stains, the wood must be cleaned with a mixture of 10% Exterior Wood Cleaner and water. 


  1. Prepare the surface in order to achieve the desired result (planed, sanded, wire brushed…). 
  2. Remove sanding dust from the surface and wipe dry. 
  3. Stir WoodCream well before applying it.
  4. Apply the product to the vertical surface with a block brush. Work with the grain in sections approximately 3 to 4 boards wide. It’s best to keep a wet edge. In one motion, use an application brush to perform a final pass, ensuring the WoodCream application is even and consistent. 
  5. In case a more opaque result is required you can apply a second layer after at least 3 hours. Since the first layer is already water-repellent, the second layer will not adhere to the first layer as easily. We recommend spreading the product with the block brush on the first layer in one smooth movement and going over it several times. 

Clean up

  • Rinse the brush used to apply WoodCream in water.
