GF Water Based Wood Stains

General Finishes

Reference: GF

Water Based Wood Stains have all the advantages of oil based stains: they spread easily, can be repaired, blend effortlessly and have plenty of open time. The thicker formula allows controlled penetration, which will reduce blotching on softer woods such as Aspen, Pine and Maple.

Recoat/Dry Time: 1-2 hours

Coats Recommended: 1 coat of stain is recommended - no more than two. If you apply multiple coats, add 10-20% topcoat to the stain to lock the color down. The other option when applying 2-3 coats of stain is to apply one coat of shellac before applying top coat. Allow to dry overnight then apply High Performance.

Thinning: Thin GF water based semi-gel stains with 10-15% extender or water at point of use only. Decant what you need into a separate container and use immediately. If thinned water based semi-gel stains are stored, they will separate and lose the semi-gel consistency.
