Questions & Answers

Can I apply a paint over this? Looking for a smooth finish when done, to match existing pottery barn furniture.

Asked by: Zack
I've only stained after the pre-stain and you should do it within 20 minutes or so of the application. I don't see why you couldn't apply paint then, but why wouldn't just use paint alone as that would already provide you with a smooth finish? I don't know if this pre-stain conditioner will help you get what you are looking for. Remember that once you apply the conditioner or really any 'liquid' to the raw wood you are raising the grain of the wood and need to lightly sand anyway. So I think I would just sand and then prime and paint if that is what's required.

Hi. The directions say to allow conditioner to penetrate 30 minutes. Must it then be stained immediately after 30 minutes or is there a window of time acceptable? For example, can one apply the conditioner, wipe off the excess then get back to it the next day to stain ? Thank you.
Asked by: Harry
I wait about 1 hour to 2 hours before application of stain.

Can I use tung oil after using pre-stain conditioner, and stain for finish protection? I'm concerned the tung oil won't penetrate the wood after using the conditioner. Thanks for any help ASAP!
Asked by: LWD
Pre stain helps get smooth uniform stain effect. Have not used Tung Oil myself, but it should work. Try it on a small piece to see the effect before working on the actual project.

After spending two days stripping and sanding my front door to a bare almost blond wood, I applied this product and it made all the wood various shades of dark so no longer could I have a light door. Stained it darker to cover up the mess and had the same type problem. Applied top coat and made it worse, Finally ended up having to paint it, Not happy at all

I was under the impression that this would would raise the grain so the stain would not and you would not have to sand the stain.When I applied the stain it raised the grain enough that I had to sand it before applying varnish.
