Bought Kiwila, colour, good to use, but turned out bright orange, how can I make this more natural - even darker brown would be good to blend in with the rest of the garden.
Purchased in October 2020 for $58.00.
Perfect, deck is back looking as new.
Used other brands over the years, tried this for the first time and i must say I am really impressed. Applied 2 coats, took some time to dry. A low sheen finish is impressive.
Purchased in May 2020 at Bunnings Warehouse for $68.00.
I just got this product and it won't mix. Sludge at the bottom that you can barely scrape off and won't mix with the rest. Wish id reviewed before as this problem has been mentioned for 3 years.

Simply Does The Job
I chose this after much research. I used "natural" colour to enhance grain of timber decking. It went on easily with a roller after cutting in edges with a brush. I wiped of excess with a cloth ten minutes after each coat. So far, it has impressed producing a lovely dull sheen and enhancing the natural grain. It's cheaper than most other decking oils, but from my experience and others, appears to be better. Happy oiling.
Exact finish I’d hoped for!
I read the mixed reviews on this forum before committing to try this product. So glad I went with my gut feeling and bought it. The jetty now looks like the day it was built. Very happy with British Paints natural colour decking oil. Will definitely be buying this product for the next application.
Good product, have used several different brands over the years, this one is auick and simple.
Brings out the maubau grain nicely.
The paint did have sediment on the bottom (from sitting on bunnings shelf) but nothing a good quality paint stirrer couldn't fix.
By the way I used the BP gloss varnish, and it came up really good, after 5 coats.
Found the BP oil base decking oil easy and quick to apply. It needed to be as I have over 160 square meters of decking at various levels. Makes decking on the place look great. Unfortunately, to maintain this I have been recoating it annually; at some point the timber will become nicely saturated and this may turn into a biannual event.Just hope BP continue to make the stuff; and leave the recipe as is.
Yellow deck, yuk
As per some of the other comments, we purchased British Paints Decking Oil, Natural finish, to go on our existing cleaned and weathered deck. Buntings consultant advised that it was a clear liquid but upon application it is a horrible yellow color, certainly not natural.
Returning this product to Bunnings.
Unhappy with colour, so yellow
I used BP water-based oil colour Natural on pine decking. It is bright yellow. It's awful and I'm so disappointed. How can I fix it? I've done two coats and each coat just makes it more yellow. How can I fix it? Can I go over the top with a different colour?
Surprisingly good and excellent value for money
Used it on our 2 year old deck, which had been oiled with a MUCH more expensive product. It went on easily, covered well, and made the deck look brand new again. Thee only downside is that it remained a bit sticky for a few days. It is a great product at a wonderful price. I will be using it exclusively from now on!
- Decking Oil Water Based
Sludge won't budge
I recently purchased the British paints water based decking oil. It looked milky muddy colour and had sludge at the bottom. After mixing for a substantial amount of time the sludge still did not decrease. Taking back to bunning to get a refund and buy Aqua deck as I know I won't have issues with that product. Not happy as my nearest Bunnings is over an hour away!
Good can't complain
We used the " Natural " now 2 years on treated pine. Every 12 month and it is doing the job in my opinion.
I used a lot less after the first treatment. The decking is facing north on a Gold Coast Water way. I think water based is the way to go.
Good value ,excellent depth of colour and coverage
Decking is 20 square metres under cover and 5 years old. Gave a good scrub down with decking cleaner over very faded original cheap stain over pine decking..
I was looking at water -based products but reviews were very inconsistent so decided to go for oil-based Merbau colour. Had mind set on Cabot's but was not happy with sample colours then spotted British Paints colour which appeared very good in samples. I ended up buying 12 litres which was applied with brush for edges and along walls then a lambswool applicator. First coat got soaked in...
Lovely on dark timber at first - need to replace after 12 months.
Applied two coats of BP decking oil really easily to a merbau deck in Jan 2016, which brought out the merbau's lovely dark lustre. Within a couple of months it had gone quite dull, and now after 12 months the exposed boards have started to go grey and the coating has become flaky, which I will need to either acid wash or sand back and re-oil. I suspect that the UV properties in the oil haven't worked properly, which might be explained by the thick sludge I had tried to stir in. I was really hoping to get a good result from BP decking oil, but I'll re-oil with another product, which, with early testing on merbau, looks and feels more robust and protective.
Questions & Answers
Hi we have a Merabu deck it is about 8 yrs old and the end boards have greyed as they get the sun and rain. I want to reoil and note you have a one coat water base decking oil. Can I use this over previous oil base decking oils?

I have used this Decking oil on the deck, this deck is built from Ikea deck packs as a replacment to ugly tiles on our balcony so was placed over the top of outdoor ceramic tiles the oil over the last 12 months of applications has dripped through onto the tiles very badly. we only know this as well have just removed the entire deck and all the tiles are stained. I would like to know what product do you have that will pull this from the tiles as it is a right mess

I had a tradie use this on one side of 12mm ply in order to seal it from any moisture coming in from the backside as he is cladding brick walls inside a shop in a high humidity area.
The smell is intense and terrible!
I feel stupid not doing product research beforehand, I’m now worried the odour will be a constant as it can’t cure out being an outside product and my second concern is the oil leaching through the 12mm ply to any paintwork on the front side.
Bad idea all round I feel...
Here are my questions:
Are the fumes toxic?
Will the fumes be a permanent thing in this situation?
Will the oil leech through ?
Looking forward to your reply
