How To: Tips & Techniques
Avoid Blotchiness Use Pre-Stain
When it comes to using Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner, the rule is easy: when in doubt, use it. All woods are unpredictable when you stain them. To avoid a case of blotchiness, first brush on a coat of Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner.
Always Wipe Off Excess Stain
To ensure your topcoat adheres properly, wipe off any excess stain that did not penetrate the surface, following the direction of the wood grain.
Test, Test, Test
Before you begin your project always test the stain on an inconspicuous or scrap piece of wood to verify desired colour.
