General Finishes Water-Based Wood Stains is one of the most advanced interior stains on the market. It provides uniform coverage with brilliant color over raw wood and sealed surfaces. GF Wood Stains use cutting-edge resin and pigment technology to offer DIY consumers and professionals an easy-to-use alternative to traditional oil-based products. They spread easily, can be repaired, can be blended effortlessly, and have plenty of open time.
Users can easily achieve dark, uniform colors on hard-to-stain woods like pine and maple. These stains can even be used over existing finishes much like an oil-based gel stain. The thicker formula allows controlled penetration, which will reduce blotching on softer woods.
The high-quality pigments produce rich, dark, uniform colors on hard-to-stain woods like maple and pine. Low odor, low VOC, water cleanup, and noncombustible. Looking for a "green" environment-friendly finish? These stains are now formulated with more than 50% renewable resources formulated from sustainable materials that decrease the carbon footprint.
Some grain raise is expected when using water‐based stains. Minimize this by wetting wood with water, allowing it to dry, and sanding smooth before staining. After staining and applying the first coat of topcoat, use caution not to sand through topcoat and damage the stain. Finish should be smooth after sanding the second coat of topcoat. You can also create toners by mixing with any General Finishes Water-Based Topcoats.
Note: "Natural" is a pre-stain conditioner that does not have any colorant. Use it to control blotching on hard-to-stain woods such as maple, pine and cherry before applying a water-based wood stain.
Also available in quarts.
Helpful tip: Do not apply with a rag or cloth. If stain is drying too quickly, apply more stain to re-wet the surface. For deeper color, a 2nd coat can be applied after the 1st coat has dried completely.
