This dark, almost black finish can add drama and elegance to your space, while also providing protection for your floors. In this blog, we’ll walk you through the steps of coating your timber floors with Black Japan timber floor coating by Feast Watson, so you can achieve a beautiful and durable finish.
Step 1: Preparation Before you start coating your floors, you’ll need to prepare the surface. This involves sanding the floors to remove any existing finish or sealers and creating a smooth, even surface. You’ll need a drum sander or an orbital sander, along with various grits of sandpaper, starting with a coarse grit, such as 24 or 36, and working your way up to a finer grit, such as 120 or 150. Be sure to sand in the direction of the wood grain, and avoid applying too much pressure, which can cause uneven spots.
Once you’ve sanded the floors, vacuum up the dust and wipe them down with a damp cloth to remove any remaining debris. Allow the wood to dry completely before moving on to the next step.
Step 2: Applying the Black Japan Timber Floor Coating Now it’s time to apply the Black Japan timber floor coating. Feast Watson recommends using their Floor Finish Applicator or a brush to apply the coating. Start in the furthest corner of the room and work your way toward the door, applying the coating in long, even strokes in the direction of the wood grain.
Be sure to apply a thin, even coat, and avoid overloading the applicator or brush, which can cause drips and uneven spots. Once you’ve covered the entire floor, allow the coating to dry completely, which usually takes several hours or overnight.
Step 3: Sanding and Applying Additional Coats Once the first coat is dry, you’ll need to sand the surface lightly with a fine grit sandpaper, such as 220, and wipe away any dust with a damp cloth. This will help to create a smooth, even surface for the next coat.
You can then apply a second coat of Black Japan timber floor coating, following the same process. Repeat this step until you achieve the desired level of darkness and depth in the finish. Feast Watson recommends applying at least three coats for a durable, long-lasting finish.
Step 4: Finishing Touches Once you’ve applied the final coat of Black Japan timber floor coating, you’ll need to allow it to dry completely, which can take several hours or overnight. You can then remove the painter’s tape and touch up any areas as needed.
Feast Watson recommends waiting at least 48 hours before placing furniture or rugs on the floor to allow the coating to cure and harden. Be sure to follow their care and maintenance instructions to keep your floors looking beautiful for years to come.
In conclusion, coating your timber floors with Black Japan timber floor coating by Feast Watson can be a great way to add drama and elegance to your space, while also protecting your floors. With the right tools and techniques, you can achieve a beautiful and durable finish that will impress your guests and enhance your home’s overall design.
