I'm making an outdoor sign with pallets and I'm going to paint an image on it and was wondering if this would work?

Asked by: Barbermarine
Since Preserva Wood is a penetrating oil based stain and sealer, I don't think it will work like a paint for putting an image on a pallet.

How can I get some color on the deck after using this product 3 months ago it is very blond on the cedar

Asked by: EJD
The CLEAR product that you used is formulated to protect your wood from moisture damage, while allowing the wood to age naturally over time. The label on the CLEAR says that it will allow the wood to "gray" naturally. If color retention is your objective, we suggest that you use one of the tinted versions of Preserva Wood. Our transparent stains are very lightly pigmented, to retain color and enhance the natural beauty of the wood, while providing additional UV protection. You cannot re-apply stain again in 3 months. You should allow the deck to weather for at least 1 year to 18 months and then give it a good cleaning with a detergent based cleaner. At that time, if small droplets of water cast upon a dry deck are absorbed into the wood, then you can apply a very light application of one of our tinted stains for color retention.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great wood finish Easy to use with a beautiful finish. Went on well and looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A truly "clear" sealer! I have tried several different brands of "clear" sealer and they never turn out clear....always tint the original beautiful cedar fence dark. This product went on great with an airless sprayer and is truly a CLEAR sealer. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Outdoor Protection for Wood I recently built a serving table for our outside BBQ area out of pallets and common Pine 2x6's. In order to protect that wood from the elements here in SE Arizona (Sun and Monsoon Rains!), I used this product. It's a good thing, too, because the afternoon that I put it out for a BBQ, we had some of our monsoon rains! The water beaded up and was repelled where this product was used. Good proof of its ability to protect against water. Like a champ! Now, I just have to finish treating the pallets, too, when we get a sunny spell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior, high quality product for harsh seasonal climate I use this product on my boat dock at Lake Tahoe every Spring to restore and protect it from the harsh extreme climate changes, ranging from intense direct summer sun to winter accumulated snow and ice. Follow manufacturer directions using bleach mixture to eliminate any mold or mildew prior to application, and wipe away excess product afterward or the surface will remain tacky for awhile. This product is outstanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice sealer! I got this clear sealer to seal a variety of small outdoor sheds. It went on very nicely on every surface. It dried smooth and clear. So far, it seems to be fairly rain-resistant. Wood needs a LOT of sealing here in the Rockies because of the rain, wind, snow, and sun at 9400 feet. The proof of this sealer's lasting value will be more apparent in another 6 months, so I'll try to get back here to post at that time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Works Cleaned a bench I've had for over thirteen years then applied the Oil-based clear penetrating stain and sealer. I must say I was delighted with the out come. In fact it worked so well until I am doing my gate to my back yard. The clean-up was so easy, just a little soap and water cleaned the brush. I've never used a product with easy use and clean-up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not last at all. I installed this per directions on a new cedar deck. Within a few months, the deck started turning black. Now I need to strip all of it off the deck (700 sq ft) to put something decent on it.
