A uniquely formulated semi-transparent oil stain that turns the wood to a soft, natural silver gray. If an enhanced weathered driftwood gray tone is desired at initial application, mixed 50/50 with Cabot bleaching oil. Use on exterior wood that has not been previously treated or wood previously treated with bleaching oil or weathering stain. Ideal on siding shingles, shakes, fences, and rails on any type of uncoated lumber. Not recommended for trim or decking. Weathering stain produces a self-protecting finish and achieves a uniform weathered look. Apply evenly with a brush or spray. Best results can be obtained by using a high-quality, natural bristle brush. If you must spray, always backbrush immediately after each section is coated to ensure proper penetration.
