1. Apply to raw or stripped wood. All wood must be sanded with 60-80 grit sandpaper to open the grain, unless it's rough cut. Stripped wood must be totally down to the raw.
2. Dust off your piece and you're ready to stain. You do not need to use wood moisturizers, beach, or any other wood prep besides sanding.
3. Using a brush or sprayer to apply a heavy coat of stain. Wood should be soaked in stain.
Wood will absorb stain evenly. If stain puddles, use brush to remove standing stain.
4. Do not wipe stains back off! Just allow them to air dry.
Stains dry in 45-60 minutes.
5. OPTIONAL: Apply a second coat, to darken stained effects.

- Make sure to order a sample and test products on YOUR wood, prior to ordering for the entire job.
- For smoother finish, you can sand with 80 grit, then 120 prior to staining. After stain dries, finish sand with 320 grit. Then topcoat.
- Wood that's been sanded, textured, or water popped will stain darker, because stain can better penetrate wood.
