A: Happy to help, Irene. Varathane Premium Fast Dry Wood Stain can only be applied to bare wood, the stain needs to penetrate the wood. Any existing finishes (including polys) need to be removed before staining. Apply one coat of stain liberally with a good quality brush or clean lint free rag. Allow to penetrate for 2-3 minutes, then remove excess by wiping with a rag in the direction of the grain. Removal of all excess material is essential to ensure proper dry time. All excess stain must be removed. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 6
A: Great question, Franklin. Rust-Oleum Varathane Premium Fast Dry Wood Stain works on all types of wood. The high performance nano pigments work to intensify color clarity and highlight wood grain. The final appearance will vary with different types of wood. For best results, follow the preparation application steps on the label carefully. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 4

A: Hi John, thank you for reaching out! Our Varathane Premium Fast Dry Wood Stains are designed to dry in the wood grain, and will not dry on the wood surface. If the excess wood stain is not removed from the surface, it will never fully harden, and will dissolve into the polyurethane when it is applied. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2
