Looking After Your New Furniture
When you put a lot of effort into choosing the right outdoor furniture and stoneware, you want it to last for years to come. Wexford Stone Crafts Ltd can offer you tips on looking after your new patio furniture due to almost 20 years of selling products. The finish on our products are generally maintenance free for approximately 4 to 5 years or longer depending on exposure. They may just need a clean with luke warm water.
After this period, you may decide to renew the finish on your product following our simple steps and information set out below. Weather you bought a piece from us almost 20 years ago or are deciding to purchase a new product from us now, please do not hesitate to contact us for any further advice or information.
We use Sandtex Masonry paints on our products and these are readily available from any good hardware or paint shop.
Our main colours are as follows:
Base coat: Sandtex Black Masonry (2.5 litre would be sufficient for most ornaments and tables with some to spare)
Colours: (tester pots will be more than enough to add the required colour)
White: Sandtex White Masonry
Brown: Sandtex Brick Red
Green: Sandtex Alhambra
Yellow: Sandtex Scarecrow
- To lighten the Green Alhambra colour mix some White with it
- To darken the Brick Red colour mix some Black with it
- To achieve the skin colour for the boys and girls etc. mix some Brick Red with White
Very small amounts of these colours are required when painting so its best if you are mixing these colours together to only mix small amounts rather than the full pot until you are happy with the colour. An optional extra when you have finished painting your product would be to apply a coat of lacquer to give extraprotection to your paintwork. This should only be applied when your finished paintwork is completely dry. Please see our online shop for this product.
