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

Asked by: Zack
Paint requires primer. This product won't do anything for paint, waste of money. This is for pre-oil based stain application.

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.
