Has anyone else used this product on pine? One of the reviews I read says it turns pine purple. I’m wanting to use it on a pine dining table and purple is definitely not the color I’m going for, lol.

Asked by: dan
Yes, this product works on ANY wood. Have used in two products and was delighted with the results. The real advantage is that it oxidizes the wood naturally, which in turn produces a realistic aged wood look.

I have a cedar bench that is natural brown and has never been outdoors. I treated it with 1 coat of tung oil 10 years ago. Will this product work to gray the wood? Thank you
Asked by: Jenna
It’s a very very thin water based product and I don’t think it would penetrate the surface of your bench.

1 qt. Interior Weathered Wood Accelerator is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 196.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from One container worked great, next one turned wood light blue Bought one container for a project & it turned out great, nice weathered gray look on different types of wood. I ran out, so bought another container, I noticed a difference in color and thought maybe it was the wood type, so I tried the small amount I had left in the old container on a scrap piece of the same wood. It wasn't the wood, it was the product. Ruined my project that I now have to redo. Thx varathane. I don't know how they can sell products that are completely inconsistent.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from First container worked great, 2nd container turned wood light blue The first container of this worked great, turned wood a nice weathered gray color. I ran out, so I bought another container. I noticed a color difference right away, I thought maybe it was the wood type that soaked up the product differently, so I used the small amount I had from the first container on a scrap piece of the same wood and nope, not the wood, it was the product. I just dont understand how Varathane can sell such inconsistent products!!

I wanted an aged look. This "wood accelerator" did the trick. Applied out of the can, it appears watery -- do not be deceived! It results in a gray color. The more coats you apply,the darker it gets. One door had more knotholes than the other and came out with a lot more character than the one with plainer wood.

It goes on like dirty water, just slather it on real fast and let it sit for a couple hours. depending on the wood youll start seeing results right away, but the color does deepen during the drying time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from use a different product I used it on a few test pieces of pine. It turned the wood a deep purple color. I wont be using it on my project. I'm going to try something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I have used this several times to make repairs look like the older, weathered wood. Most times, it works much better than stain.
