Colorwood and Colorwood Whitewash wood stains

Staining a natural wood surface accents and enhances the wood grain. Resene Colorwood is a waterborne interior penetrating wood stain that is ideal for rejuvenating and enhancing timber and composite boards including Strandboard, plywood, MDF as well as most flooring.

Resene Colorwood is usually overcoated with Resene Aquaclear, Resene Qristal Clear polyurethane or Resene Qristal ClearFloor. Rough sawn interior timber, such as beams, can be stained with Resene Colorwood without clear finishing or polyurethaning.

Create a whitewashed style effect on interior timber walls and floors quickly and easily with Resene Colorwood Whitewash. Environmental Choice approved, Resene Colorwood Whitewash is low odour and low in VOC compared to solventborne interior stains and polyurethanes. It’s easy to apply and suitable for use by professional decorators or home decorators. Use it for everything from a minimalist Scandanavian effect on flooring through to refurbishing old interior clear finished timber.

Resene Colorwood Enhance is designed to be added to waterborne clears - Resene Aquaclear and Resene Qristal ClearFloor - and will subtly colour the clear finish. It is available in three timber tones as well as black and white and is best applied by brush or speedbrush, layering the colour up in multiple coats. Resene Colorwood Enhance helps even out the appearance of similarly toned stains, deepening the underlying colour and helping eliminate any patchiness. It is ideal for restoring the colour of timber without the need to strip previously applied clear finishes. Resene Colorwood Enhance cannot be used with solventborne clears.

As well as Resene Colorwood Whitewash and Resene Colorwood Enhance, Resene Colorwood is available in a range of colours from traditional timber colours to brights. You can also get it tinted to your favourite Resene Exterior Woodcare colour so that you can have a consistent colour palette inside and outside your project. See the Resene Colorwood brochure for colour options.
