Level of difficulty


  • New wood



Step 1

Start by sanding the wooden shed... The more attention you put into this stage, the better the end result will be! Choose a 150/180 grit sandpaper and make sure to wipe off any dirt, residue and resin between one board and another with a dusting brush and a dry cotton or microfiber cloth.

Step 2

Now that you have removed all dust and impurities, the surface is ready to be coated. We suggest to use IMG - no-drop water-based impregnating agent for wood, available in different colors, from neutral to dark walnut.

Step 3

During the application, be careful to move the paint brush in fluid movements, going with the grain and, most importantly, don't leave any uncovered areas. Out tip: when opening the can, mix the product well for at least one minute to reduce its high density. During the application you will notice that the product looks like a gel. This consistency prevents product dripping and guarantees a high performance, even close to knots. Leave to dry for 2 to 4 hours.

Step 4

Complete by applying the FNC transparent water-based topcoat for wood, allowing an interval of at least 2-4 hours between the first and the second coat.
