Can this be thinned to be more transparent?

Asked by: Jessie
Yes. Use mineral spirits. Another way to get a more transparent look is to sand to a finer finish such as 320 if you have been using 220 as your final sand pass. Soak time should also be shorter as well to give a more transparent look. Since the dye particles are so fine the thinning seems to work well. Always make test pieces and mark what you did on the back of each. Pros make what are known as test panels to show the full finish process. Your topcoat material will always change the appearance somewhat as well so add that to your sample pieces. Follow your sample's finish process carefully for consistent results.

can water based polyurethane be used to seal or do you have to use an oil based one? whats the main difference between the oil based one and the water based one?
Asked by: nimsay
Thank you for your response. You can certainly use a water or oil-based polyurethane to topcoat Rust-Oleum Varathane Fast Dry Wood Stain. Just make sure the stain is fully dry before coating. There are two main difference. The first is that the Varathane oil-based poly will have an amber hue to highlight the wood grain, which is best for darker colors. The second difference is the clean-up with soap and water for water-based poly and mineral spirits for oil-based poly. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5

1 qt. Briarsmoke Premium Fast Dry Interior Wood Stain is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy and quick, color is inaccurate I took on refinishing my 100 year old hardwood floors, and I thought this would be the perfect cool grey-brown. It is much darker and greyer than shown on the can, but it did warm up a little as it cured. Overall I'm still happy with the look, but it's definitely not what I planned. On the plus side, it was a quick and easy project, took 1 hour to dry just like the instructions stated. Started staining after work and about 6 hours later I was done staining and sealing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I’ve primarily used Minwax in the past and I was very happy with the end results of this product. I used Briarsmoke on some shelves I built and its the perfect brown with gray undertones. Looks awesome in my office. The product goes on easily and absorbs evenly. I did end up doing a second coat to get a deeper color. The stain does dry fast which is nice if you are looking to do multiple coats, it eliminates the long way time.

I followed the directions to a tee and I wiped every single bit of excess stain off the wood. It is not like any other stain I have used. It is thick and paint like. It looks like I painted it gray and tried to wipe it off. Waste of money and time! I will never use this product again. The color on the can as well as the sample in the store are very misleading. Never have I been more disappointed in a product.

At best, it is a glaze, but resulted in a painted surface instead of the wood stain finish represented on the can. NOT EVEN CLOSE. The color is closer to confederate gray. Completely unacceptable. Sand paper and a reputable stain are in my near future. Complete waste of time and effort.

Awesome coverage, easy application (I used a rag to apply not a brush) went on very smooth and evenly. My only BUT is the color of the picture and the color of the actual stain is different.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible product. If I had wanted a can of grey... Horrible product. If I had wanted a can of grey paint, I would have bought that. Heavy like a one coat paint without a "wood color", not a stain at all. No sheen to it. Had to let it dry, take it off and go buy something else to put on instead. Very misleading product.
