Resene Waterborne Woodsman is an exterior wood stain designed to colour timber, while still allowing the natural grain of the timber to show through. It is the perfect way to add colour to new or previously stained timber without losing its natural beauty.

Resene has embraced the current trend towards non-traditional wood stain finishes, now offering a new range of exterior wood stain colours in traditional, limed and bright hues. Choose from Totem Pole red, Embers orange, Rangitoto green or perhaps the more traditional Cedar wood finish.

Stains are transparent, therefore the final finish colour will depend on the nature of the timber being stained. Stains applied to light woods will appear much stronger and brighter in colour than stains applied to dark wood.

As with any finishing project - regardless of the products being used - always go through the entire finishing process using scraps from the project before committing to the colour. Preferred colours can be easily tested on a representative piece of wood using Resene Waterborne Woodsman testpots. You can order Resene Waterborne Woodsman testpots online.

The most popular product in the Resene Woodsman range is Resene Waterborne Woodsman, which is fast drying and easily cleaned up in water.

See Resene ColorShops nationwide for a copy of the Resene Exterior Timber Stains colour chart, or order a copy online.

All colours available in Resene Waterborne Woodsman. Selected colours available in Resene Woodsman Decking Stain (marked with ‘wd’), Resene Woodsman Wood Oil Stain (marked with ‘wo’), Resene Forester (marked with ‘fs’), and as a Resene CoolColour (marked with ‘cc’).

Selected Resene Colorwood colours may also be tinted into Resene Waterborne Woodsman for exterior use.

Wood stain colours will look different depending on the timber they are applied to. If you are choosing a paint colour for adjacent areas, sometimes it can be better to choose a contrasting colour than trying to get an exact match in paint. However if you would like to choose a similar paint colour, the Resene Colour Lab has put together some starting suggestions for you. We recommend you check to see whether the colour suggested is suitable and use that as a starting point to choose darker or lighter if needed. View the excel file of Resene Colour Lab suggested paint colours to go with Resene wood stains.

You may also be interested in the Woodsman Cedar Natural Wood Oil range. Named after National Parks and Forest Parks, this collection of Resene natural wood oil colours is designed to bring out the best in your timber inside and out.
