I need to tint this slightly gray. Is this possible? Thanks

I need to tint this slightly gray. Is this possible? Thanks
Asked by: flaggirl9
Yes. Transtint brand dyes are water soluable. If you don't want to obscure the wood grain too much, only dye the last coat

Will this protect an indoor barn wood wall without adding a sheen? How many coats?

Asked by: KLPY
I use this product on clean, reclaimed wood - including pine, oak and cedar barnwood - all the time and the results are great. I have found the matte finish can often leave a slight sheen. How much sheen is dependent on the wood and if there is an existing old coat of paint or to what degree it has weathered. On other occasions the matte simply leaves a nice, soft feel to the wood without any sheen or very little sheen at all. You won't know how your wood will react sheen-wise until you apply and allow it to dry. Personally, I liked the RustOleum brand that this Varathane reportedly replaces better... but comparing it to other brands then the Varathane Matte has provided me with the most consistent, low sheen results.

Does this have an amber finish? Or does it amber over time?

I see nothing on this label about it being clear or amber. Thanks!

No, this imparts no tone and will not yellow

Is this the same thing as the Rustoleum ultimate polyurethane matte with soft touch?

Asked by: Amanda
Unfortunately, Rust-Oleum stopped producing that product. Varathane is made by Rust-Oleum and replaces the original and the company says it's the same product but I have experienced sight differences in results. This is a very good product but it's not quite as good as Rust-Oleum. The matte dries a bit shinier and doesn't have the same "soft" feel in my humble opinion. With that said, it still beats other name brand polys.

This is a very good product - though I still miss the Rust-Oleum brand matte poly that this Varathane replaces. It seems to dry with more of a sheen than what I am used to or would prefer but it still outperforms many of the other matte polys that I've tried. I own a small online home decor business and use both the Varathane matte and the satin poly finishes exclusively on my reclaimed wood artwork and home decor items. I find them both to be excellent sealers that do not leave fingerprints behind. In addition, even though I wish Home Depot would carry this product in stock I have found that ordering it on-line and picking it up for free in the store is very easy to do and often just as quick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I like the water based polyurethanes because they don't yellow over time, clean up is easy, and they dry quickly. However, the products I have tried previously didn't self level very well and they left dried bubbles in the finish. This Varathane product dries very smooth with just the amount of sheen I wanted.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice soft glow after 3 coats Three coats recommended, and I would agree. After 3 light coats, the finish is very smooth with a nice soft glow. Brush stroke detection is minimal. Product dries very quickly, prompting you to apply quickly for blending edges.
