      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

        Q:How strong is odor as will be doing project indoors??
        by|Oct 29, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Thank you for reaching out, James. Varathane Premium Fast Dry Wood Stain has some odor when applying, so we recommend applying in a well ventilated area. For lower odor products we recommend using Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Water-Based Wood Stain as it has a more subtle odor. Please also note that sensitivity to smell is different for each person, and we ask that you take all necessary action to prioritize your safety. -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14

            I haven't had a chance to do my sample boards for the Garden & Accessory cabinets I am doing for a garage project, but I did a test on a large terracotta plant vase, which is almost 2'ft tall and 30"inch wide..... 1 coat of the stain and 2 coats of acrylic sealant. The vase came out stunning!!!! Goes incredibly well with the red, white, blue theme vases....and looks great. I will do some sample boards this weekend, but I will say this Varathane's Barn Red is fantastic. Looks great and I can't wait to do the other samples.

            The color is fantastic. It looks like a deep cherry on barn wood.

            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.

              Weathered Gray looks cheap and painted on
              On freshly-cut pine the weathered gray went on very inconsistently and looked more or less painted on. Nobody in my family liked it. I did end up going with Behr’s bold coffee custom tint, which looks awesome and goes on like a proper stain.

              Response from Rust-OleumSupportJun 23, 2023
              Let's talk about this, Miles! Rust-Oleum Varathane Premium Fast Dry Wood Stain must be applied to bare, sanded wood. Sanding the wood helps ensure the stain can properly penetrate. When staining a softwood, like pine, we do recommend using Rust-Oleum Varathane Wood Conditioner to help prevent a blotchy appearance.

                Very easy to apply and it's a nice dark brown. I used 2 coats and it looks great. Only one coat of you want to see grain of wood.

                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.
