Sand surface without making scratches and vacuum.
Apply Pre-Aging to the surface using a painters tray and the Rubio Monocoat Microber Bristle Pad. For edges/corners: apply with a cut in pad then smooth the Pre-Aging using a white pad. Work along the length of the boards, in widths of 10-15 inches. Avoid forming puddles.
Allow to dry for about 24 hours and ensure sufficient ventilation. TIP: It is perfectly normal for the surface to dry in ‘spots’ that follow the grain pattern. As long as the surface still looks ‘spotted’, it is not dry yet.
After drying (approx. 24 hours if there is sufficient ventilation), break the raised wood fibers using a buffer with a red pad. Vacuum and finish with a color from the Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus 2C range. No buffing needed.
