This gel stain goes on easily. The ebony color is truly black not charcoal so exactly what I wanted.

This was crazy expensive for the size of the container, however, I have no experience doing this and it’s an expensive project to screw up. Just following the company’s you tube videos and using this the result was exactly as advertised, and this was my first time staining anything. If you have a picky partner and prefer not to be surprised by the result, this is for you.

You must must must apply this stain very quickly and remove excess with cloth. I made the mistake of applying the stain liberally using a sponge brush which ended up taking too long (3 minutes), and the stain dried on half of it before I could remove it with a cloth/rag. Videos/Documents provided by HW reflections did not indicate this time sensitivity, therefore 2 star.

A very nice stain. Was darker than we expected (almost black), but when we added the gel top coat, it pulled some color and provided a very nice finish/color.

Worked very quickly. Went on easily. We had no issues with the stain. We were a bit concerned about the can being small but it was enough to cover all sides of one 8 foot counter top or top of one 6 foot and one 8 foot countertop.

The color that is shown on can and on the video is lighter than the actual color when applied to my counter. The color is called ebony so I would assume a black base but with pictures I was led to believe otherwise & it shows a more dark brown look but in fact it is true to name & has a black base.

Great comment. We use "one coat" for pics and video. You can easily apply multiple coats for a darker color. HFAria

These gel coats are designed to adhere to most surfaces but should be easily wiped after a few minutes to get an even coat. HFAria

This is the third project where I have applied this Hardwood Reflections wood stain. I have tried three other brands, and the color, even application and sheen after buffing is much superior to all the other generally available stains. I usually apply three or four coats, following recommended cure times.
