A: Thank you for reaching out! We use different wood types for our marketing and label images for the Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain. For more information on our color swatches, please give us a call at 800-901-0411 to talk with us. Please keep in mind, a test application is always recommended to ensure a favorable color, as the cut and condition of the wood will also affect the final color. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
A: Thanks for reaching out, Julia. Varathane Gunstock Wood Stain would be the closest we have to that stain color. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 6
A: Happy to help, Pamela. Varathane Classic Wood Stain can only be applied to bare, properly prepped wood, the stain needs to penetrate the wood grain. Varathane Stain cannot be applied over paint. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 6
A: No. It will not cover the paint
A: Hi Philip, thank you for reaching out! If the natural color of the wood is darker than the stain, the stain will not be able to lighten the wood. The stain will still impart a glow to the wood, which may be desirable, and we recommend applying a test application to a scrap piece or inconspicuous area first to ensure the desired results are achieved. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2
