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
A: Happy to help! Each quart of Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain has a recommended coverage of up to 150 square feet with a single application. If staining both sides of the fence, your square footage would need to be doubled. If more coats are needed, the coverage rate will be affected. Please keep in mind, when using this on exterior surfaces, it must be topcoated with an exterior-grade polyurethane or spar urethane. We recommend Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Spar Urethane for a crystal clear finish! https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-qt-Clear-Satin-Water-Based-Outdoor-Spar-Urethane-2-Pack-250241H/202057149 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
