Additional Product Information:

  • Surfaces must be clean, dry and free of any grease, glue or other contaminants prior to staining.
  • For previously stained wood, sand surface lightly to help adhesion.
  • Remove dust with a lightly dampened cloth. To ensure beautiful, uniform color, pre-treat wood with our Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner.


  1. Stir well prior to use.
  2. Always test the finish on a sample piece of wood to confirm the desired appearance.
  3. Using a brush, pad or clean cloth, apply thin, even coats in the direction of the grain, taking care to avoid puddling. Overlap strokes, always maintaining a wet edge. If desired, wipe off excess material within five minutes.
  4. Finish will be dry and ready to re-coat in two hours.
  5. If a deeper tone is desired, apply additional coats. For best results, apply in temperatures between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit and relative humidity 40%-60%. Low temperature and high humidity may lengthen dry time. For optimum protection and beauty, topcoat with our clear PolyWhey Furniture or PolyWhey Heirloom Fine Finish.
