Customer Questions & Answers

Do you need to pretreat the wood so it doesn't get blotchy

Asked by: cfm
Before applying Varathane Gel Stain we recommend removing any existing coatings using sandpaper or stripper. Prepare bare wood for staining by sanding in the direction of the grain. Begin with 120 grit sandpaper and progress through 150, 180 and 220 grits. Remove all sanding dust with a vacuum or clean rag dampened with mineral spirits. Soft woods such as pine, fir and maple require a wood conditioner. Use Varathane Premium Wood Conditioner before staining.

Customer Reviews

1-qt.Traditional Cherry Gel Stain (Case of 2) is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.
