    Answer This Question

    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

      Q:can this product be used over polyurethane finishes

      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      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

        Q:Which product would you recommend more for refinishing oak hardwood floors; this product or the Fast Drying version? What are the biggest differences as it relates to staining hardwood?
        by|Nov 2, 2022
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        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

          Perfect clear colorless stain
          Excellent coverage and true clear colorless tones. I used as a pre stain before applying dark walnut on pine slabs to help lighten contrasts across softwood grain. It wipes or brushes on and has a barely wet sheen. Have to pay attention to avoid missing spots. Dries quickly and ready for overstaining in 2 hours.

          I’m beyond obsessed with this stain. I went back and forth with 2 others before settling on this one. It really brought out the beauty of the wood on this table I made!

          Great product!
          If you're looking for a sleek look, this is the color for you. It only takes 1 coat & you only need to shake or stir before using.

          Don’t buy hazelwood,
          Looks nothing like the photo on the can. I’ve used other shades that applied perfectly, but this applied so poorly. I sanded my wood piece extremely well beforehand, but it looks as if I didn’t at all. The color like murky light gray water. I also stirred my can in a circular motion as directed for a very long time; so it’s not like directions weren’t followed. This ruined my piece of plywood, and wasted my time and money too.

          Something is amiss here, Natalie. Keep in mind that the final finish of the Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain can differ depending on the wood species. For that reason, we always recommend applying the stain to a small test area first to ensure it's the color you're looking for. We need to know more about your experience to get to the bottom of this. Please call us at 800-901-0411 to discuss further. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5 Rustoleum

            deep rich color, slightly gummy in texture, adhered well. Final effect looks like redwood (on douglas fir 2x10)

            This stain is great - loved the color! Trick is to wipe off before it dries - I left it on only 3 minutes and the color was awesome. Showed so Much wood grain detail - if you leave on too long it gets to dark and just looks solid.

            Weathered oak = gray
            Wish I would’ve read the reviews before I used the weathered oak on my brand new unfinished desk. The first coat looks really nice; second coat, the stain turned the wood almost completely gray. Not at all what I was expecting based on the photo on the can and the images associated with this color. I tried oil based polyurethane to hopefully brown up the color a bit, but no dice. Smaller piece in photo is one coat plus poly; larger piece is two coats plus poly. Super disappointed.

            Thank you for sharing your experience. Since the wood species used for the application will affect the final color of the stain, it is essential that Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain is applied in a test area first. Different color stains from this line can be mixed together to create a more custom color if needed.
