Brown Pine Tar
Auson Brown Tar is a classic pine tar. The brown colour has its origins in the national romantic period of the 19th century. Now, more than a hundred years later, brown wood exteriors and roofs have once again become popular. Brown Tar produces a matte brown colour and a beautiful wood surface. And the pine tar naturally provides protection from strong sunlight, moisture and rot. You can use Brown Tar on untreated wood and on wood that has previously been painted with tar, distemper paint or iron vitriol. If you paint on planed wood, you need to dilute with 10–20% turpentine or denatured alcohol. On non-planed wood, no preparations are needed.
Always stir well before painting, since the colour pigment gathers near the bottom during storage. Stir regularly while painting, too. Otherwise the colour pigment will gather at the bottom and you will end up with an uneven colour on your facade.
