The door should be lightly sanded to remove any loose or flaking areas (on a preprinted door) or to seal off new wood (on a new, unfinished door). Next apply a good quality oil primer. Allow to dry fully. You may need to give a light sanding again with 220 grit sandpaper to smooth the surface. Follow this with your oil based under color. Next mix your colorwash glaze using universal tinters and Alkyd oil based glazing liquid. Once your finish is complete cover the door with 2 coats of exterior oil based clear varnish, sanding between cots with 220 grit sand paper.
