can I put a epoxy resin over it after white washing

Asked by joejose June 21, 2021

Answer

Happy to help! To ensure the best results with Rust-Oleum Varathane White Wash, we recommend applying the epoxy in a test area first, or first applying a coat of Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Ultimate Polyurethane. The coat of polyurethane will help seal the surface prior to applying the epoxy and prevent bubbles in the finish. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-qt-Clear-Gloss-Water-Based-Interior-Polyurethane-200041H/100193658 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

Asked by Marcia May 26, 2021

Answer

Hi Marcia, our Varathane White Wash Wood Stain may only be applied to bare wood; it is not recommended for laminate surfaces. Our Rust-Oleum Home Floor Coating may offer the best solution for your project, since it includes a base coat for laminate flooring, and a clear protective topcoat: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Rust-Oleum-Home-1-Gal-Ultra-White-Interior-Floor-Base-Coating-357671/312680441 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2

Can this white wash be used over a painted surface?

Asked by RobF May 19, 2021
1
Answer

You've come to the right place, Rob. Rust-Oleum Varathane White Wash Wood Stain can be applied over a bare or stained wood surface. The key is that the surface needs to be porous to allow for the stain to dry properly. Most paints wouldn't allow for that possibility, so we recommend applying to a test area first to ensure the desired results. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5

Can it be tinted

Asked by Gibo April 24, 2021
1
Answer

Thank you for your response, Gibo. Rust-Oleum Varathane White Wash Wood Stain, along with other pre-colored Rust-Oleum paints, is not formulated to be tinted. The addition of colorant to these can affect product coverage, drying, and performance. If looking for a custom color, colors from the same line can be mixed together. We recommend mixing enough color for your project all at the same time to ensure an even color throughout. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5

Can it be applied with a roller?

Asked by Isahak April 14, 2021

To ensure the best results and coverage, we do not recommend applying Rust-Oleum Varathane White Wash Wood Stain with a roller. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

If I use it on my wood floor do I need to put a finish over top when done or will this stain and finish

Asked by Tatew April 4, 2021
1
Answer

You've come to the right place, Tatew. Rust-Oleum Varathane White Wash Wood Stain would not be able to hold up on a floor without a floor-grade protective coating over it. For that, we recommend using Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-based Floor Finish Polyurethane. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-gal-Clear-Satin-Water-Based-Floor-Polyurethane-2-Pack-230231/202057141 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5

Asked by Waszy April 3, 2021
2
Answers

Happy to help! Rust-Oleum Varathane White Wash Wood Stain is intended for use on bare or stained wood surfaces. We do not recommend it for use on previously finished wood as the coated surface will prevent proper penetration and drying of the white wash. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

I applied too much varathane whitewash. Is there anyway to remove it besides sanding and starting fresh ?

Asked by 1216 March 23, 2021
1
Answer

Happy to help! If Rust-Oleum Varathane White Wash Wood Stain has already dried on the surface, then yes you will need to sand the finish. Otherwise, when the stain is still wet it can be wiped away with a clean rag and some mineral spirits. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

Great product! It made our beams look amazing! I was skeptical about it being oil-based but it turned out to be the perfect product to white wash our rustic beams.

cool white color, enhances grain nicely
I was looking for a pale cool (bluish, not yellowish) gray color, basically a weathered-wood look but lighter. After applying Weatherwash Storm on maple wood, which is terrific for enhancing the grain while staying towards the blue, but it's still darker than I wanted (right side of photo). So I wiped on a thin layer of Varathane White Wash (left side of photo), and it's *perfect*, exactly what I wanted. Grain is still vivid, color is lovely. Easy to use, dried quickly, one coat was all I needed.
