Application Directions

  • Preparation Warning
    Removal of old paint by sanding, scraping or other means may generate dust or fumes that contain lead. Exposure to lead dust or fumes may cause brain damage or other adverse health effects, especially in children or pregnant women. Controlling exposure to lead or other hazardous substances requires the use of proper protective equipment such as a properly fitted respirator (NIOSH approved) and proper containment and cleanup. For more information, call the National Lead Information Center at 1-800-424-LEAD (in US) or contact your local health authority.
  • PREPARATION
    • Start with bare/stripped wood that’s clean and dry.
    • Sand with #220-grit sandpaper in direction of the wood grain and remove sanding dust.
    • Apply Minwax® Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner — especially on soft woods — for best, even color.
  • APPLICATION
    • Test before staining on a hidden spot to make sure you like the color.
    • Stir stain well before and occasionally during staining. Don’t shake or thin stain.
    • Wipe away excess stain, working with wood grain to blend lighter/darker areas together. The longer you wait, the darker/richer the color.
    • To darken color, recoat. Do NOT sand between coats. If happy with the color, let dry completely before applying a protective topcoat.
  • PROTECT
    Finish every project with a clear protective topcoat like Minwax Fast-Dry Polyurethane or Minwax Polycrylic Protective Finish.
