Rated 3 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good stain. Too red for me. This stain takes forever to dry but I guess that is kind of a good thing since it gives you plenty of time to work with it if you need to before setting up. I do not agree with the instructions which state you can recoat in 2 hours. It seems to take this stain about 24 hrs to dry properly before I would even consider recoating. I like that is stays in place and you can create a number of effects with it easily. I do not like the very red color that this stain is however. I prefer a more subtle red hue in cherry stains. This one is rather prominent. January 30, 2014
