    Default HELP!, Feast Watson Timber Primer & Stain

    G'day, I'm in need of a fairly quick answer because I've just given my project a coat of F&W Timber Primer. I need to know when I should be applying the wood stain?, I looked on the F&W Website and can't find anything about the timing. And it doesn't say much on the tin. I'm abit anxious because I've seen the stain applied within 5 minutes of the timber primer/wood conditioner applied.

    According to this advice, you apply stain after 8hrs. I've mixed Prooftint with timber primer in the past to get an immediate colour.

    NB. The name has changed from Fungishield to Timber Primer

    I think there may be a significant misunderstanding here.

    FW's Timber Primer, used to be called Fungishield. It's purpose was to prep timber used in moist areas -- kitchens and bathrooms -- to discourage the growth of mold. (You used to be able to buy the anti-mold additive as well -- in 50 ml (?) bottles -- which you could add to the top coats.)
    As far as I know, Timber Primer is not intended as a prep coat or sanding sealer under a furniture style finish.

    I'm thinking of sheeny's other post about his "Rubber wood" drawing surface.

    Backing up Ian's post, what exactly is the project?

    Feast Watkins advice for the use of Timber Primer is as follows;

    Timber Primer | Wood Preserver, For Priming New Timber

    If it's for indoors in non moist environments, there are better products IMO such as Sanding Sealer if you wish to grain fill and get a smooth finish.

    Default Help re Feast Watson timber primer

    Hi anyone. I'm a novice and need help. Can I apply F&W sanding sealer over F&W timber primer? I'm trying to restore a dining table and have sanded it.

    I don't have a can of Timber Primer in front of me, but think that what you have applied will essentially act as an undercoat.

    you should be able to apply a film finish on top of the primer after a light sanding to remove any nibs or raised grain.

    From what I read, Bush Box would be an unusual choice for furniture -- it's commercial uses are said to be flooring, cladding, paneling, and structural
