Water Based Wood and Dye Stains

Nothing produces color on wood like a water-base stain. General Finishes Water Based Wood Stains and Dye Stains allow you to create the truest, deepest colors possible on any wood species.

Water Based Dye Stains

General Finishes Dye Stain

Water based Dye Stains penetrate deep into the wood to magnify the grain beautifully. They will provide your project with more depth and color vibrancy than any other GF stain. This product is excellent for highly figured woods like mahogany, walnut, or birds eye maple.   Dye stains can also be used as a toner when mixed with GF water based topcoats.

General Finishes Water Based Wood Stains have all the advantages of oil based stains: they spread easily, can be repaired, can be blended 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.
