Product Features


Approximately 150 sq. feet per quart depending on application and wood porosity

Area Preparation

Surface must be clean and dry. Remove all dust, dirt, grease, oils, wax, and any other surface contaminants. Previous coatings must be completely removed. Prepare bare wood for staining by sanding in the direction of the grain with sandpaper until smooth. Use a tack cloth or vacuum cleaner to remove any dust prior to staining.

Application Details

Provide adequate ventilation. Different species of wood absorb stain differently. Test color on a hidden section or scrap wood before staining a large area to determine the best time interval between application and wiping. Stir well before and during use. DO NOT THIN. When using more than one container of the same color, intermix to ensure color uniformity. Apply a uniform coat with a high-quality, natural bristle brush or a soft, lint-free cloth. For increased depth of color, repeat stain application after 2 to 4 hours. Protect with the appropriate water-based or solvent-based, clear topcoat after stain has dried thoroughly, 8 hours minimum.

Drying Time

Dries to touch in 15 minutes and to handle in 30 minutes at 77°F. Requires 2 hours of dry time before adding another coat, 8 hours of dry time before adding a top coat.
