Answer This Question

A:  Great question, Denise. When applying Rust-Oleum Varathane Interior Wood Stain to a table we recommend top coating with a suitable polyurethane. However, even with a polyurethane, care needs to be taken to use a coaster to help prevent water rings on the surface. -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14

      Q:Purchased 1 in x 2 in x 8 ft softwood boards and sanded with the Ryobi orbit sander using 120 and 220 grit which ruined a few corners. I also applied the wood conditioner. The stain is still blotchy and leaves drip marks. How can I fix this? Buy new wood?

        A:  Part of the issue is the jump in sand paper. It is usually recommended to go up by 50% in grit as it is more difficult to smooth out the sanding from the prior grit size used.

          Q:What color of Varathane best matched Rustoleum's flagstone stain?

          Answer This Question

          A:  Thank you for reaching out. Since Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain is semi-transparent, the final appearance will be dependent on the wood species used and its condition. If trying to match a different material type, you will want to test in a small area first to ensure a favorable color. -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14

            Answer This Question

            A:  Thank you for reaching out! At this time, the smallest size we offer for most of the Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain is an 8 oz can. We recommend applying the stain in a test area first to ensure a favorable match, as the stain color will be affected by the type of wood the mantel is. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

                Answer This Question

                A:  Happy to clear things up! Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain is a penetrate product and is not a finish coat product. It will have a lower sheen, however additional applications will build the sheen some. It is also essential that all excess stain is wiped away from the surface. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

                  A:  Thank you for reaching out, Suvarna! Since this is a different manufacture, Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stains may not be a match. Please keep in mind, with any semi-transparent stain, the final color will be dependent on the condition and type of wood you are staining. Another color option is Aged Walnut, but a test application is recommended to ensure favorable results. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-qt-Aged-Walnut-Classic-Wood-Interior-Stain-369860/314947347 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

                    Q:Can you use for outdoor furniture with a spar urethane coating?

                    Answer This Question

                    A:  While you can use the Rust-Oleum Varathane Interior Wood Stain with a spar urethane, you do run the risk of needing to touch it up down the line, due to the exposure to UV and the elements. Just something to keep in mind! - Rust-Oleum Product Support 1
