Applying the garden paint over solvent based furniture oil

Postby lccc14656 » Wed Mar 17, 2021 4:39 pm

In the past I have coated my wooden garden furniture with solvent based furniture oil. I now want a change so I want to apply a semi matt garden paint which is water based. Am I okay to apply the garden paint straight onto the garden furniture or is some prep required. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi lcccc14656
Very doubtful you will have any success using a water based finish - you may be lucky with an oil based one.
