Can you use Mixol with MinWax Helmsman Indoor/Outdoor Spar Urethane?

Valtetsi · Jul 13, 2022, 15:50

We just had six lovely alder wood gates made. In order to make them look more like golden oak, the carpenter stained them a yellow color and then finished them with 4 coats of Minwax Helmsman water based indor/outdoor Spar Urethane. Unfortunately, the yellow we chose looks terrible with our remodeled exterior. We needed something that was more caramel colored and I think I can get there with a top coat of stained urethane. Can I add Mixol to the Helmsman Spar Urethane? Then how do I apply it? Lightly sand and simply apply like a final coat of urethane? Will it last? Thank you for your help.

Mixol can be added to the Minwax product then applied as finish.

However, we do recommend sanding with a 320 grit paper before the application.

Hope this helps!
