Super easy to use and my client loved the outcome....
Super easy to use and my client loved the outcome. Color is richer in person and gets a bit darker after a day and being sealed. I did 2 passes and even stained some wood filler as well and it turned out great.

    Love Colonial Maple - great for pine
    Love premium Colonial Maple stain. It makes pine looks like oak with a warm orange tone. When using with pre-conditioner, the color seems to be lighter, and I use 2 - 3 coats to get the deep color I want.

      Color changed!! Doesn’t store well.
      I purchased and used the “Traditional Cherry” (pictured) a few years ago for my new kitchen and hallway molding. The coverage was good but needed 3 coats on some wood to get it as dark as the rest. With each coat it took longer to dry (all took more than an hour) and the last coat remained a little tacky and lifted some when applying the polyurethane a full day later. Several months ago I opened one of the quart size cans. The stain had turned into a thick globby gel. 3/4 Full with the cover cleaned and sealed tight. Two remaining cans had done the same thing. Never had that happen before. I have 20+ years old cans of the other brand that are still good but not the right color. My problem: I never got around to replacing the doors in the hallway and kitchen and want to do that now but the color displayed on the can has changed from a “medium” cherry to a “light” cherry which won’t match the molding. What happened?!! With most cherry furniture being a medium tone, you’d think you could find that color easily in a stain!

      Thank you for sharing your experience, Elaine. Over time the material inside will settle, so it is important that the container of the Rust-Oleum Varathane Fast Dry Wood Stain is mixed very well. We need to know more about your application to make the best recommendation for you. Please feel free to call us at (800) 901-0411 to discuss further. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5 Rustoleum

        The dark walnut is a very nice stain to go with natural wood.

          Looking Good
          I've bought the small can, because I didn't need much for my project. The weathered gray was my second to third choice, because HD didn't have the color I was looking for. The lid seems to be not very robust, because it deformed easily and a lot. I did apply three layers on pine lattice. The lattice actually twisted a bit.

            Over 12 hours still not dry
            Put a fan on my bench but after 12 hours dry time my fingers got stain on them. I painted it on with a brush and wiped off with a cloth so it’s not on thick. I waited even longer to apply a clear sealer and the color was coming off. My wood was fully sanded and ready for stain. I would pass on this stain. I dripped some stain on the floor of the garage and this morning they are still wet which is good for clean up but not for my bench.

            That is not what we like to hear! While it is mentioned that the stain was wiped, if any stain remains on the surface of the wood, it will not dry as expected. Our Varathane Fast Dry Stains are designed to dry quickly in the wood grain, however, they will not dry on the surface like a paint will. We recommend either applying another coat of stain to reactivate the stain, or use mineral spirits to do the same. Wipe the reactivated stain thoroughly with a rag in the direction of the wood grain to remove all excess. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2 Rustoleum

              Pre-Stain is truly not needed. With side-by-side conparison
              I work with wood a lot and was very septic so about the claim that pre-stain is not needed. I tested the stain with pre-stain and without and also for different setting times before wiping it off. I was delightfully surprised to see that pre-stain is absolutely not needed. I’m fact, using pre-stain caused LESS penetration than just putting it on the raw wood. The photo attached is for the ‘early American’ stain which I purchased at Home Depot. The wood is American pine sanded from 150 - 180 grit, per the instructions. Note: ‘PS’ means Pre-stain and ‘S’ means stain, followed by the number of minutes before I wiped it off. E.g. ‘PS-3 S-5’ means 3 mins for pre-stain 5 mins for stain. The top image shows the following treatments from left to right: S-5 ; S-3 ; PS-5 S-3 ; PS-5 S-5 ; PS-3 S-3 The bottom image from left to right shows: S-15 ; S-10 ; S-7 As you can see, the amount of time soaking really does impact the finish. For my floors, I’m going with 10 mins of stain before wiping off, but you can pick whatever timing gets the look you want. I’d advise against letting the stain set for longer than 15 mins. In my S-5 treatment, it was significantly harder to wipe off the stain, because it dries so quickly. I’d say 3-12 mins is probably the sweet spot for one coat. If you want it darker, you’ll want to use two coats (with the appropriate drying period in between them). Great product. I am extremely pleased and will be buying it again in the future. I typically use General Finishes products, but I’m a Varathane convert now!
