WOCA Softwood Lye is used for lye priming of unfinished or newly sanded woodwork. The priming prevents the wood from yellowing and enhances the natural grain of the wood producing a white wash finish. WOCA Softwood Lye may be used for all types of soft wood such as pine, spruce, and pitch-pine. Used on larch wood, an antique grey/brownish finish is created. WOCA Softwood Lye may not be used on hardwood.
*NOTE* By use of softwood lye on spruce the wood may assume a greenish color which will disappear in the course of time.
