A: Thank you for reaching out. It is not recommended to mix Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain with any other product. If combining to mix colors, mix only with another color of Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 4
A: Happy to clear things up, Chella! Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stains are considered penetrating. At this time, our Varathane line only offers penetrating wood stains. At this time, we do not offer a wiping wood stain. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
A: Great question, Dennis! Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain is a penetrating stain and must be applied to bare, sanded wood to ensure proper performance and drying. We do not recommend this stain over previously finished surfaces. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
A: Happy to help, Sean! Either the Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain or the Premium Fast Dry Wood Stain can be used on bare wood floors, provided they are topcoated with a floor polyurethane. The dry times, color offerings, and the recommended coverage rates of the two stain will vary. The Classic Wood Stains have a more traditional color palette and each quart has a recommended coverage of 125-150 square feet. The Fast Dry Stains have more vibrant colors, and each quart has a recommended coverage of 275 square feet. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
