How to successfully apply General Finishes Glaze Effect over Gel Stain

Yes- this is not a good place to take short cuts. Gel Stain gets its deep rich hue from a large amount of colorants. Seal the stain with a topcoat before applying glaze to prevent "color pull" when applying glaze. You will get an additional benefit - the glaze will glide easier over the surface allowing you greater control of how much color you want to use. Be sure to wait 72 hours when applying water based finishes over oil based finishes.
