    Hi,

    I have a wooden cabin in my garden which I want to weather protect and paint.

    Somebody once told me that Sikkens was a good product to paint into the wood as a protective coating before painting.

    I have looked at the Sikkens website and find their product range and information indecipherable. I just want to know what product to use as a base coat, as well as what paint or colour coat (who does a good range) to use on top? The answers to those questions are not jumping off the web pages at me.

    Can anybody suggest a very good product to paint onto clear wood (pine) as an impregnating layer, and then a good colour range for the decorative top coat.

    Thanks.

    I have used on my front door. I believe you pick your base coat colour and then that choice determines the top coat.

    Thanks. Any idea what the base coat is called? There seems to be so many products.
