A: Happy to help, Lucas. When prepping bare wood before applying Varathane Classic Wood Stain, begin with #120 grit sandpaper and progress though #150, #180 and #220 grits. Always be sure to test your stain to verify the desired color. To test, apply the stain in an inconspicuous area. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 6
A: Happy to help, John! Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain will work best on bare, sanded wood. If the surface is already stained, the new stain may not be able to fully penetrate and provide the best color. We recommend applying in a test area first to ensure favorable results. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
A: Thank you for reaching out. It is not recommended to mix Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain with any other product. If combining to mix colors, mix only with another color of Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 4
A: Happy to clear things up, Chella! Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stains are considered penetrating. At this time, our Varathane line only offers penetrating wood stains. At this time, we do not offer a wiping wood stain. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
