    Q:I used this already I believe over poly .. a thin coat .. to spruce an old piece I inherited up.. will it ever every dry... it's only been 3 hours but its tacky?

    Answer This Question

    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

        Q:How long is the drying time if you don't wipe it off?
        by|Nov 15, 2022
        2 Answers
        Answer This Question

        A:  30-40 minutes depending on the temperature 

        by|Nov 16, 2022

          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

            80 year old hardwood floors look like barnwood now
            Love Love Love the color Carrington! it made our 80 year old oak floors look like Barnwood! We just wiped it down with a brush and wiped it off with rags didn't let it sit for too long because we didn't want it that dark. On a different set of floors I left it on for about three minutes and wiped it off and they are much darker but still just as beautiful. You cannot go wrong with Carrington! We are now going to sand down all of our doors to match

              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.

                Came out GREAT!
                Easy to apply and looks great! Just remember to wipe of the excess before it dries. Looks even better after applying epoxy glaze! I would also recommend letting any indoor furniture to dry for several days before bringing back inside.

                  Vintage Aqua is more blue than Bleached Blue
                  Over a year ago, I built a shelf and stained it with Varathane Wood Stain in color: Bleached Blue. Recently I noticed the local box stores do not carry that color. But there is a newer blue color that I noticed within the Varathane Wood Stain section: Vintage Aqua. Like I suspected, these 2 colors are different, which I like both. See this photo of a wood block with bleached blue on the left & vintage aqua on the right.

                    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.

                    Good coverage for a reasonable price
                    Needed a small amount of black stain and this was perfect. Covered very well.

                    Very Cherry
                    I chose Traditional Cherry and it is MUCH darker and brighter than the label shows. I've used it on several projects now and it produces a vibrant finish after covering it with a little poly. It's easy to use and covers nicely. I have found it advisable to use a sealer first. I've been using a homemade black tea wash and I think the results are spectacular.
