Just want to start light sanding and painting my wood windows.
So I have been looking for a rosewood color. Which matches 1:1 with the lid picture to my window color.
Now I open the can (see pictures) and suddenly the color is much brighter. It looks almost orange when stained.
Question: Is the paint still darkening or did they slip me the wrong jar?
Nothing is darkening there. But you have to stir the coloring pigments properly – do you?
The glaze is always lighter and is only meant to freshen the color. Perhaps a varnish glaze would be better for a more opaque finish?
For oil-based paints, such as Owatrol, it is very important to stir well.
