Can this stain be used as an exterior base for a front porch I plan to use a spar varnish or marine coating for the top coat?
Asked by: Jim
Happy to help, Jim. While Rust-Oleum Varathane Fast Dry Wood Stain can be applied to wood surfaces, we don't recommend topcoating it with our Spar Urethane or Marine Coating for that type of environment due to the exposure to frequent foot traffic. We need to know more about your application to make the best recommendation for you. Please feel free to call us at 800-373-6333 to discuss further. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5

I started a project with Rust-Oleum Ultimate Wood Stain, Early American. Is this the same stain marketed differently?
Asked by: AverageJoe
Glad to lend a hand. Rust-Oleum Varathane Fast Dry Wood Stain in Early American will be the same color as the Ultimate Wood Stain. However, both product lines are not rebranded and are very different. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5

is this water based or oil? Does it have the polyurethand in it

is this water based or oil? Does it have the polyurethand in it
Asked by: Jerry
Happy to help, Jerry! Rust-Oleum Varathane Premium Wood Stain is oil-based and a polyurethane should be applied over it for added durability. For interior surfaces, we recommend using the Rust-Oleum Varathane Ultimate Polyurethane in the finish of your choice. Either the oil or water-based polyurethane can be used. https://www.homedepot.com/s/varathane%2520polyurethane?NCNI-5 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

1 qt. Early American Premium Fast Dry Interior Wood Stain is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 13.

I used minwax early american stain on antique furniture repairs.This is nothing like it, very dark, in fact the chip and color on the can are nothing like the color of the stain on the old pine I used it on. Minwax was rumored to be discontinued but I discovered that it is still being sold. Perhaps on new pine it might be true to the color.
