The components found in our Weathering Mix (alcohol and dye) are getting harder to find, so Hunterline concocted their own. Picture shows 3 bottles, FDT sells 1 bottle per sale.

Weathering Mix - 240ml / 8oz. plastic bottles                        

Weathering Mix Instructions:
Our ‘Weathering Mix’ stain is alcohol based. The benefits of using alcohol are fast drying time which helps prevent ‘warping’ of the wood and it’s easy to dilute the mix to get varying degrees of a lighter stain - just purchase a bottle of 70% isopropyl alcohol at the drug store.

Application:
We always distress the wood prior to application. Wear protective gloves when handling. Just use any ‘cheap’ brush to apply. Shake the bottle vigorously before using or if you want a lighter colour, only shake a little. If using one of the mixes containing pigment, you may need to shake vigorously or stir to thoroughly mix the pigmen and alcohol, as the pigment has a terndency to ‘settle’. Use straight from the bottle. We don’t wipe the stain off, unless using our ‘Cottage White’. You may want to wipe this stain off, depending on the effect desired. We really try to apply haphazardly to get varying degrees of colour.

Will it work on other material?
You can get a good effect on plastic, paper, cardboard or hydrocal.
Clean Up - just wash brushes in soap and water
 
Have fun mixing colours or applying in ‘combinations’. The following instructions will explain how to get an old Barnboard look. You can also use this method to get a ‘peeling’ paint look with different colour applications. For example, Barnboard Red weathering - use Light Gray base with Barn Red dry brushing. (see sample images)
 
Barnboard Gray Weathering Instructions
When doing our research on how to achieve that ‘old weathered’ barnboard gray ‘look’, we noticed that we could see varying degrees of gray and brown colours. Where the wood had ‘rotted’, where there were ‘knots’, or where there was ‘bare wood’, the colour was brown.
To achieve this ‘look’, we follow a 3 step application method (It’s not a matter of ‘mixing’ the colours).

What you will need:
3 bottles of our Weathering Mix - Light Gray, Medium Brown, Blue Gray, Any coarse paint brush - size appropriate to the project
Three step application method:
Begin by ‘distressing’ the wood. Use whatever method you are accustomed to. We always use a fine toothed razor saw.
1. Apply one coat of the Light Gray Weathering Mix with your paint brush. No need to ‘wipe’ the colour off. It’s great to have varying
degrees of colour!
2. Apply the Blue Gray Weathering Mix sporadically on the project using a ‘dry brush’ method. Before applying the colour with your brush, dab excess mix on a paper towel. You don’t want the brush too wet. Having your brush a little drier, gives the project a more ‘blended’ look. Remember, you want to see varying colours of gray.
3. Apply the Medium Brown Weathering Mix, following the method in Step 2. Remember, you want to see brown in the areas where there may have been ‘rot’, ‘knots’ or ‘bare’ wood exposed.

Have fun!! If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to call or email us.

CAUTION: Wear protective gloves when handling.    Flammable: Keep away from heat, sparks and open flame.
First Aid: If swallowed, call physician immediately.    KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN
