A quick drying pigmented acrylic lacquer to give the smooth luxurious look of Ebony in a hardwearing satin black coat.

When this has dried thoroughly apply several thin coats of the Ebonising Lacquer at ten-minute intervals. This will be touch dry in ten minutes but should be allowed 24 hours to cure fully before use or further enhancement with Chestnut Acrylic Gloss Lacquer.

Poor ValueYou might as well just buy a cheap tin of black paint, it doesn't do much different to that. If you have wood with a high tanin level like Sapele or Oak then make your own solution from dissolving steel wool in vinegar which produces a great finish.

OK But not really ebonziingI've used this on a couple of finials so far and actually quite pleased with how easy it is and it gives a reasonable finish. The main issue is that you lose all grain affects so it's not really much difference to spraying black paint on your work. I will get around to making my own solution which would be far cheaper and give a more desired look.

a quality productAfter having tried several other well known brands of spray matt black, I discovered this product and have since bought at least a hundred tins.

Coverage very low. Misleading advertising.The blurb claims 6 to 8 sq m coverage per litre and that the product contains 400ml. Do not be confused into thinking the can will therefore cover about 3 sq m as I did. I found that a can will cover less than 1 sq m. That makes it about three times the price you might think. I emailed Chestnut about this and they admit their advertising is 'not as helpful as it could be' and promise to change it. Until they change their figures to something more accurate I absolutely cannot recommend it. I am trying car touch-up spray next.
