I need a stain for my out door, the surface is facing outside, the sunshine will on it, is this gel ok for my outdoor? Thank you so much

Asked by: Keke
I applied it to my wooden front door, and wooden garage doors all facing sun all day. I used exterior oil based varathane polyurethane on top. Came out great! Garage doors holding up great. However, the front door has the gel stain bubbling up and peeling off. I did touchups and still same. I'm not sure if it is the sun as the door gets pretty hot in the summer. Or is there a special primer that is needed. I only sanded and applied the gel stain.

Does the "cherrywood" Varathane gel stain have any red tones in it? Hard to tell from such a small picture. I'm looking for a medium to lighter brown color for a fiberglass door, but do not want any red tones. Thanks for your help.

Can I use this on unfinished wood following food safe mineral oil and conditioner to roll out flour dough?

Will not be using as cutting board. Very light minimal cutting with a pizza cutter will be used but not often
Asked by: Sherry
We appreciate your interest, Sherry! Since Rust-Oleum Varathane Gel Stain is not a food-grade coating, we do not recommend it for use on surfaces that will have direct contact with food. At this time, we do not have a clear coating that is food-safe and able to go over treated wood surfaces. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

This stain worked well for a picture ledge shelf I created for our breakfast nook. Make sure you use a pre-stain conditioner on softer woods like pine or you can get some blotchy results. I like how the gel is thicker and clings to the wood's surface better than flooding with a more watery stain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful color, easy application First time using a gel stain. Our front doors were tired and faded, decided to try gel stain so I didn’t have to sand down to bare wood. I did a light sanding and wiped down the doors with a vinegar/water dampened cloth. After drying, I applied the gel stain using foam brushes. I wiped after the stain was on for several minutes to get rid of visible brush strokes and excess gel. Dried fairly fast in 65-70 degree weather. A few hours later, was able to close the doors but the finish is still a bit tacky. I will probably wait a few days to polyeurethane and touch up any spots. Very pleased with the results. You can still see the wood grain through the stain. Very easy project for a beginner. Would definitely recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great, easy to use Pretty sure the 1-star folks didn’t do something right. For us, it was super easy to apply using scrap painter’s rags. We wiped it on and rubbed it in. Simple as that. If it’s dripping or gloopy, or if it takes more than 20 minutes to dry, you’re using WAY too much. Beautiful color that brought new life to an old, weathered arbor on our porch. Also, one can goes a really long way...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as described I lightly sanded the furniture, applied a thin coat of pre-stain conditioner and then wiped this on. Easiest for me to do it with a glove on my hand and then a white sock over the glove. Then I rub and wipe the stain on. I usually do 2-3 coats for a great even coverage. It looks great and breathed new life into a bed that was about 70 years old, but solid mahogany. It looks new now and so far, I’m pleased. I’m hoping in a few days it will be dry enough for a sealer. I haven’t decided which one I’ll use yet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from looks great. took forever to dry I bought this to use as a cross between paint and stain. I applied it using a brush over wood that has prevously been sealed snd i didnt want to sand down. It did just what i wanted and game out beautiful but it took two days to dry enough to poly it. Once done it was just what i envisioned.

For me it was a lot easier to work with that any of the oil based stains. It also seemed to spread a lot farther and evener. I didnt have to recover the same place as many times as I would have with oil based.
