Auson Pine Tar vitriol

Auson Pine Tar Vitriol is a thin tar glaze that gives a stylish, modern grey colour. The colour will look brownish at first since to start the pine tar sits on the surface along with the pigment. But even on the first application, it penetrates the wood to protect it from moisture, while the grey pigment remains on the surface.

The end result is a stylish grey colour that blends in with nature and looks after the wood. The Pine tar vitriol contains gum turpentine. You can use the Pine tar vitriol on wood that has previously been treated with iron vitriol.
