    Q:Should your premium wood stain be shaken before use
    by|Nov 6, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  It would be best if it's stirred, Bob.If you do shake the Rust-Oleum Varathane Premium Fast Dry Wood Stain, you do run the risk of bubbles in the film, so you'll need to allow the product to settle before use. It's easier to stir it to ensure quick use. We hope this helps! - Rust-Oleum Product Support 1

      Answer This Question

      A:  We're happy to help, Betty. If using Rust-Oleum Varathane Premium Fast Dry Wood Stain on flooring or stair treads, the stain must be topcoated with a floor-grade polyurethane.

          colonial maple premium new formula ia fantastic
          Did tounge and groove ceiling under our new deck and decided to go with white pine. Tested 15 stains and colonial maple premium came on top, I had an old bottle from long time ago and ordered new and it had improved the color and also did not need to use wood conditioner and came out perfect no blotchy spots, I stained and coated bothsides with Helmsman Oil Based Spar Urethane in Satin finish and it came out gorgeous!

            Great stain and color
            This stain color was the closest color we could get to match the rest of our mid century furniture. We are so pleased.

            Predictable Quality Stain
            I have used 3 quarts of the weathered gray stain for all of my cabinets, from dining room built ins, kitchen, bath vanity, to fireplace mantle. It comes out a deep gray, a little darker than i wanted, so i wait a couple of hours and cut it back with golden pecan. It leaves a warm oak look, with the open grains showing the dark tones. It does have a strong odor, so working in the shop or garage (or outdoors-weather permitting) is desred.

              Perfect simi-transparent black stain!
              I was looking for a black -ish semi-transparent stain that would be solid consistent color but allow the texture of the wood to be visible. This was the only one I could find and it coated perfectly and completely in just one coat. Works great and finishes very well.

              These are by far my most favorite of stains
              I have been using these for so many years and I love the quality. I have been always happy with the quality however i will say in no way does this ever dry before 6 -12 hours. Sometimes if its humid it will take way more time. No matter what it is worth the wait.

                Favorite stain
                This is my new favorite brown stain. Has a good grey undertone. I love the premium stains. They go on smooth and easy and are a bit thicker. I have not been disappointed yet.

                Varathane is a top Choice.
                This product is incredible. I've used it to refinish an old table and an antique rocking chair. Both projects turned out great. The Varathane goes on easily and covers well. For large blemishes and wood filler multiple coats are necessary for best coverage. I like Varathane much more than the Minwax varnish stain.
