UV protection coating - secret inscription1/19/15
The object with that use will be situated in interior.
For now I tried to apply some matte transparent stain (glaze) with UV protection over stencil, but i can easily see the difference between treated and non treated wood. (of course!). - treated is little bit darker and glossy (although is should be matte). And also after sun, the uv protection coating did not stop darkening at all.
I am open and glad for any ideas how to make it. Thanks a lot!
i did this before, but not quite how you describe it. How i did it was i taped off the entire piece. Drew the lettering on with a pencil. cut it out with a razor, exposing only the wood inside the letters. Then i sprayed a coat of vinyl sealer that has uv absorbers. remove tape,scuff lightly spray a coat of lacquer, scuff lightly, recoat. Continue until the surface is smooth and you cant see the film thickness difference from where the vinyl sealer was.
thank you Kevin for a response,
did you achieve a noticeable color difference between uv coated and non uv coated wood after a sun bath?
do you remember what kind of a sealer and a laquer exactly did you use?
yes. the wood didnt discolor as much as the part that wasnt sealed.
and no, i cant remember the exact product the sealer was. i tried a few different ones before i found one that worked. if i had to take a guess i would say it was Sherwin williams T67F6 sealers and T77F38 pre cat lacquer
Chomin - you are on the right track - you need to block the UV where the stencil/frisket is, but not the rest of the wood.
The easiest solution I can think of is to use Ciba 1198 on the bare wood (as long as the wood is a light color like the example in your photo). I'm attaching a data sheet that describes this direct-to-wood photo stabilizer. Contact your local coatings suppliers to find a source.
Don't use an oil-base varnish over this product - it may prevent it from curing properly.
