Reserve enough paint for one uniform surface, and stir into one canister to avoid possible colour differences. Stir Teho well before use. Apply by brush. Prime with Öljypohja Oil Primer or with Teho Oil Paint thinned 5 % with Alkyd Thinner 2010. Finish with unthinned Teho, preferably a few days after priming. The finishing paint can be thinned with Alkyd Thinner 2010, if necessary. Apply liberally and carefully on end-grain.
There is resin and other coloring extractives in the wood, particularly in knots. They may cause discoloration or seepage of resin through the paint surface as a result of temperature and humidity fluctuations.
Teho can be maintenance painted with Teho, Ultra or Pika-Teho
