Can anyone help us with a problem that is of our own making really.
We sanded old floorboards back to bare wood. We then chose an Osmo finish that looked good in the store ....sort of grey and translucent with some of the grain showing through. However when we had used the paint followed by the recommended seal it looks awful. The grey is really opaque and the only thing that shows through is the brown knots. We wondered whether putting a varnish on would solve it, but apparently it is not compatible with the Osmo sealing product so we need to sand at least the top layer off again....
Putting a varnish over seal is not a good idea as it will not provide the clear finish. Apart from using this, you can opt for sprayed solvents that are specifically designed for using over the seals. These are available on most of the worktop related stores. try it, I hope your problem will vanish by using this.
