TIPS BEFORE YOU START
(OPTIONAL) PRE-STAIN WOOD CONDITIONER Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner is designed to help hard to stain woods such as pine, aspen and cherry accept a stain more evenly. IMPORTANT NOTE: Pre-sealing the wood will lighten the color of your stain. It's important that you test the Pre-Stain and color first. A second coat of stain may be applied after the first coat has dried to achieve a darker color.
1. Apply Pre-Stain to raw wood with a clean cloth, foam brush, or paint pad applicator.
2. Wipe off the excess with a clean, dry cloth.
3.-Allow Pre-Stain to dry 30 minutes before applying stain, but no longer than 2 hours.
APPLICATION OF STAIN
DRYTIME & CURE TIME
General Finishes Stains and Topcoats can dry in 6-12 hours under ideal conditions (70Â°F and 70% humidity). Cooler temperatures or higher humidity may extend the dry time to 12-24 hours or longer. Good ventilation and air movement will greatly improve dry time. The final Topcoat will completely cure in 10-14 days. You may use your project immediately after drying, just treat it with special care during the curing period.
