Topic tags/keywords: question

Guys, I did a couple of different searches and can’t seem to find my answer. I have made an outdoor wooden flag which I would like to weather with a brownish coloring but don’t know what will hold up over the paint outdoors. It will be mounted on my friends house so I don’t want to take the chance whatever I use will run on his siding. Thanks Pat

Sam, I’m not sure I understand your recommendations as I DO want to change the color slightly with the weathering. Are you saying to use these products over the weathering step? I do have a few quarts of the Helmsman that I really liked for other outdoor applications. Thanks Pat

“but don’t know what will hold up over the paint outdoors” was your question. I gave you three possible answers. None will prevent aging over time. The oil based products will change the color immediately. None will last forever and should be recoated every year or two.

Ok I see. That makes sense, so it was just another topcoat to seal the finish I will add. Thank you for clearing it up for me. Do you happen to know if the Helmsman product can be tinted?

I have never done so but I don’t see why not?
