This penetrating water-based stain opens up a world of possibilities in just one wood-grain-hiding coat. Ideal for small projects, unfinished furniture, cabinets, doors and trim. For interior use only.
They are similar in that they are both 5x thicker than traditional stains for easier application control and less mess. They are both available in three grab-&-go colors, and are both tintable to 200+ colors. What is different is how opaque they are. Semi-Transparent stain allows you to add color to your wood surface, while highlighting beautiful wood grain. Solid Stain offers a more opaque finish that hides more wood grain, but maintains the natural texture of real wood. Solid Stain will give you a more even, consistent color across the entire surface.
For best results, we recommend using a high quality synthetic brush to apply a liberal coat of Solid Stain. Within three minutes of applying, use a synthetic pad (similar to those used for paint; not a "stain pad") to remove the excess stain, moving with the direction of the grain. This application method will mitigate differences in pressure and give the most even color.
Yes! You can tint any Minwax color in Wood Finish Color Stain!
