How to use Yacht Varnish


Sand the wood using 120 grit paper. Wear a mask to avoid inhaling any dust. Wipe away dust with white spirit and leave to dry. Don't use in temperatures lower than 10°C. Stir well before use and test on a small area to check you are happy with the finish. 


Use a brush and apply 3 thin coats in the direction of the grain. Leave 8 hours between each coat and lightly sand using 240 grit paper before the final coat.

Clean Up

Remove any varnish from your brush and wash with white spirit. Don't put any left over varnish down the drain or into watercourses. Your local authority may have facilities to get rid of unused varnish.
