A: Happy to clear things up! Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain is a penetrate product and is not a finish coat product. It will have a lower sheen, however additional applications will build the sheen some. It is also essential that all excess stain is wiped away from the surface. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
A: Thank you for reaching out, Suvarna! Since this is a different manufacture, Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stains may not be a match. Please keep in mind, with any semi-transparent stain, the final color will be dependent on the condition and type of wood you are staining. Another color option is Aged Walnut, but a test application is recommended to ensure favorable results. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-qt-Aged-Walnut-Classic-Wood-Interior-Stain-369860/314947347 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
A: While you can use the Rust-Oleum Varathane Interior Wood Stain with a spar urethane, you do run the risk of needing to touch it up down the line, due to the exposure to UV and the elements. Just something to keep in mind! - Rust-Oleum Product Support 1
A: Thank you for reaching out, John! Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain in Special Walnut is a warmer color. The final appearance, and which tones are visible, will be dependent on the type of wood used. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
