Give bare or untreated wood a weathered, aged look in minutes with this product.

One of the more popular styles these days for wood furniture and accessories is to make them from weathered wood.

Weathered wood takes on a grayish look that’s difficult to replicate, until now!

Varathane has put that natural aging process in a can with its Charred Wood Accelerator. It creates a weathered, aged look in minutes on bare or untreated wood.

It replicates the aging process that happens in nature by reacting with tannins in the wood to create a one-of-a-kind aged gray look.

Like the natural aging process, the final look of wood varies depending on the type of wood. You simply apply it with a synthetic or foam brush and let it penetrate the wood to create the desired effect. 

Allow it to sit on wood anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on how light or dark you want the effect to be.

Once it’s dry, apply a lacquer topcoat to seal and protect the surface.
