A matt finish has been popular for awhile now with both paint and interior finishes but until recently, no such option existed for decking/timber. Now, thanks to Feast Watson, a natural, matt look is available with their new Matt Look decking finish.
Offering a lower sheen to the ‘wet look’ effect common with most timber finishes, and available in three shades – Natural, Jarrah and Merbau – Feast Watson’s Matt Look Deck allows users to enhance the look of exterior timber, as opposed to changing its natural colour altogether.

Matt Look Deck uses a modified, water-based oil formula that combines the advantages of both treatments – penetrating like an oil but with the drying time of a water-based product – to deliver impressive and long-lasting results, fast. “Where other timber care brands tend to offer solely a ‘wet look’ finish, we appreciate that our customers have diverse tastes and so have sought to align our range accordingly; particularly as the trend for organic outdoor design gathers pace,” said Jessica Green, Feast Watson Brand Manager.
Thanks to its unique formula, which boasts exceptional water, UV, mould and dirt-resistant properties, Matt Look Deck makes for easy cleaning, while simultaneously protecting timber against even the harshest of weather extremes; resulting in a finish that looks fresher for longer.
For best results, prepare your deck with Feast Watson Woodclean. This will remove surface contaminants that can impede absorption of the coating as well as rejuvenate both new and weathered timber. Then with Matt Look Deck, apply two coats, leaving a minimum of two hours between applications for maximum absorbency.
Matt Look Deck will be available in 1L, 4L and 10L sizes, along with a 250ml sample size for customers to experiment with colour options.

Is the new Matt look more like a varnish or an oil? How many coats do you normally need of this?
