Can this be used on a aluminum garage door??

Asked by: Robin
No, stain works by soaking into the surface it is applied to. Aluminum isn't porous like wood is.

Can this stain be applied by paint sprayer

i am having to relpace my stair tread and risers and want to you a paint prayer. Will this product work with a paint sprayer.
Asked by: Bryan
Definitely not. The gel stain's thicker consistency will not pass through the sprayer nozzle easily. You should look at using a traditional wood stain instead.

1 qt. Mahogany Gel Stain is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vertical stain at it's best! This product is super thick... no runs and goes on smooth. After staining my garage doors I bought more to stain my front and side door. Neighbors are copying me :0

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have used this stain on many different surfaces, and every one worked extremely well. I stained a contact paper covered plywood table top, and by causing a striated lengthwise pattern, actually made it look great with just a foam brush. You can mimic the appearance of woodgrain with just a little experimentation. I've used it on previously finished wood, made antique pewter and brass hardware look like bronze, and painted it on the plastic trim that is cut to look woodlike to frame a mirror. For most applications I don't even wipe it off as you would with regular stain. I find it to be indispensable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to apply stain I decided on gel stain since I was staining pine and worried about it blotching. I sanded my work piece with 220 grit paper, and used wood conditioner prior to applying the stain. I used a foam brush to spread the gel, and wiped it off with shop towels. No blotches or streaks at all! Just make sure you wipe the stain off fairly quickly (5-10 mins max), or you're going to need some elbow grease to finish the job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definately Different This was really tough at first, but after a couple doors I kind of got it, in my experience, I started out wrong, I was trying to use it like a stain, but I had much better luck with it after I just used it like paint. I really like it, I plan on changing my honey oak kitchen cabinets to a mahogany. Cant wait! Very little prep sanding used with my trial. Overall I really like, just don't treat it as a stain or it can be frustrating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic! Gel stain is VERY different from standard staining products. If you are using it in the correct manner, both in application and on appropriate materials, the results are fantastic! I see poor reviews, but it sounds like those individuals were expecting a different type of stain than gel. Give gel a try! The color is wonderful and applies beautifully! I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked like a charm! All the complaints I see are from people that clearly have never researched how to use gel stain. I did some reading online before purchasing and never had any problems. If you paint it on, let it sit about a min and then wipe it off, you should be fine. I'm planning on a second coat tomorrow. This is my FIRST time ever using any kind of stain. Have lots of rags/gloves on hand!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This is one of the easiest, most user friendly product I have ever used. I absolutely love it and clean up is a snap.
