A:  Happy to clear things up, Mike! Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stains have a different formulation than our Premium Fast Dry Wood Stains. Because of this, the colors will not be an exact match. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

            A:  Thank you for reaching out, Cindy. Yes, Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain should be applied with temperatures between 55-90° F. Applying outside these conditions can hinder the curing process and cause the stain to leave a tacky finish. -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14

              Answer This Question

              A:  Let's see if we can help. The amount of coats of Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain depends on the porosity of your wood. Since this stain is a penetrating product too many coats can fill the pores of the wood and leave a tacky finish on the surface. -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14
