A: Thank you for reaching out! Rust-Oleum Varathane Premium Fast Dry Wood Stain is not considered a gel stain, however it can be used on interior bare wood furniture. If wanting to use a lacquer, you will want to ensure that it can be used on stained wood and ensure that the stain is fully dry prior to applying it. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
A: It would be better if you removed the old stain if you’re wanting to get the best look. You can use paint and stain remover to do that, for instance Behr wood stain and finish stripper that is also sold at Home Depot. Follow the instructions on the stain before staining to get the best results.
A: We appreciate your interest! For the best results, we recommend applying Rust-Oleum Varathane Premium Fast Dry Wood Stain over bare, sanded wood. The presence of an existing stain may prevent the new stain from fully penetrating. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
