Antique Lye has been developed specially to produce an ammonia smoked appearance in oak wood. This product is relatively easy to use, but is corrosive and should be handled with caution during application. Because Woca Antique Lye reacts with the tannic acid in the oak, the colour after application can vary depending on the concentration of tannin in the wood. However, it does create a very unique colour and vintage appearance. The final colour will be apparent after one or two months.
