1 qt. Aged Wood Accelerator is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 11.

This is an easy to use, premixed water based stain that ages wood quickly and without nasty fumes. I tested this on pine, basswood, balsa and bamboo, the most common woods I use. It works well on all of them but really makes pine look aged and weathered. I plan on using this to age model kits and dioramas and being water based I can apply it inside the house and not gas everyone out with dangerous fumes. A quart covers over 250 sq ft. Application is easy, just brush on and let it dry for 30 minutes to an hour. You do not need to wipe the excess off. If you want a light coat of weathering you can wipe some of it off of course. If you want to protect the wood you can cover this with a lacquer based clear. They do not recommend a poly clear coat directly over the stain. It works well, it doesn't stink up the house and a quart will last me years. I recommend it.

I applied it to some scrap wood that my husband usually uses for his furniture projects and, voila -- instant "old" wood. It stains the wood, but kind of grays it at the same time. I intend to use it on a finished piece as soon as said husband completes it. I used one of those sponge "brushes", but I think you could use a paintbrush or soft rag just as easily.

Nice water based stain but I fail to see how it looks like aged wood when done. The container is plastic with a lid that snaps closed easily and completely - no hammer needed. The product results in a transparent brown finish which looks to me like a transparent brown stain. I fail to see that the result looks "aged". The product is more striking on a wood with a lot of grain. I would definitely use this as a medium brown stain stain but not as an aging product. I love the convenience of soap and water cleanup.

Aged Wood Accelerator made by Varathane products is an quick way to get that rustic look on any raw wood piece. The can has a plastic top for easy opening and sealing. It is water based and can be applied with a brush, then wiped off or simply use a cloth. The rustic brown color dries in a couple of hours but looks best after 24 hours. Protection can be applied using a varathane lacquer spray.

I used rough sanded pine for this. I was well pleased with the effect that it produced. I also tried it out on some fine sanded pine. But the rough sanded seemed to work better as it really gave it that aged look that I was after. Just for kicks and giggles, I tried it on other species of wood. I was surprised at the mixed effects that it produced. Some I liked. Some I did not. So I suggest that you test it out before you start a large project. All in all I really liked this product, and recommend it

I'm always looking for new effects for wood finishing, so I thought I'd give the Aged Wood Accelerator a try. The application is simple enough - brush on, wait an hour for the most part. The question is, what's it do? Well, I tried test patches on scraps of white pine, swamp ash and red oak. On the very porous white pine, the effect was pretty much like a weak stain coat - to me it said "brown" instead of "aged." I had higher hopes for the swamp ash, but in truth it was a pretty boring piece of swamp ash. It came out OK. Where it really excelled though, was the red oak - the grain really "popped" and I could really envision it as aged. Probably will take some experimenting to get a great effect (e.g., randomly wiping parts after application).

I wiped with the grain, and applied light to medium rate, while not wiping off any excess. That gave it a good look as the heartwood and sapwood absorbed at different rates.
