General Finishes Water Based Wood Stains are formulated to provide workability similar to oil-based stains.

They spread easily, can be repaired, blend effortlessly and have plenty of open time. Their 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.

Colors

Maple is used on the left side, and oak is used on the right side of each picture.

Colors shown are for information purposes only: Actual colors may vary from the color on your screen due to monitor differences.

Directions for Use

Preparation

To insure surfaces are clean of all grease and oils and smooth enough for staining, sand all surfaces with the grain using #120 and finishing with #220 grit paper. Remove dust.

Application

  • Stir well prior to use.
  • Apply liberally with a foam brush or a paint pad applicator. It’s essential to use liberal amounts of stain to insure easy workability.
  • Stain a complete section (a side, top, or drawer) and wipe off the excess evenly with a clean, dry cloth before starting the next section.
  • For mistakes (rag marks, lap mark, missed spot), re-wet the area and wipe out evenly with a clean cloth. Light buffing the stain coat is optional. Be careful not to buff through the stain, particularly on the edges. Use either #320 or finer sandpaper or a fine buffing pad.
  • A second coat may be applied to darken the color.

Tools

  • Foam brush or paint pad applicator.
  • Can also be applied via spray

Top Coats

All top coats (water based, solvent based, lacquer based) work well over General Finishes Water Based Wood Stains.
