Surface preparation: the unfinished woodwork must be clean, dry and finely sanded (grit 100-120) before applying the lye.

! Always remember to test on a less visible spot to check the compatibility of the surface with the product.


1. Shake the container well and pour the lye into a plastic bucket. It is important that no pigments are left in the container. Stir regularly during the application to prevent the pigments from settling to the bottom.
2. Apply an even coat of the lye with the WOCA Applicator, a nylon brush or roller lengthwise along the grain. Apply at least 1 L of lye per 10 m² of wood. Leave wood to dry for approx. 8-12 hours at 20°C.
3. De-nib standing fibres and remove excess pigments with a medium e.g. green or bordeaux polishing pad. Remove the sanding dust with a vacuum cleaner.
4. Finish the wood surface with a oil.
