1. Do not apply Crown Varnish Stain over surfaces that have been wax polished unless all traces of polish have been removed and the surface sanded thoroughly.

2. The shade effect obtainable with Crown Varnish Stain will vary greatly depending upon the type and colour of the timber being coated.

3. It will not be possible to produce a light effect (i.e. Natural Oak or Light Oak) on a naturally dark timber or a timber, which has previously been stained with dark shade.

4. For best results, rub down with waterproof abrasive paper (wet and dry) or fine sandpaper between coats to remove any film surface defects and wipe clean.
