Gel Stain Application Instructions
Gel Stains may be used over painted or varnished surfaces as well as on raw wood.
Warning: Gel Stain is an oil based product with high VOC. Work in a well ventilated room or outdoors. Inhaling Fumes can be hazardous to your health. Wear gloves during application.
Prepare the surface by lightly sanding with 220 grit sand paper and clear away all dust. For more damaged surfaces, sand down to bare wood to remove all old varnish and stain. Clean away dust particles and apply a coat of Miss Lillian's Condition prior to staining. Condition promotes an even stain tone.
Apply a generous coat of Gel Stain to the surface you are working with. Brush on or sponge on.
Allow the stain to rest for a few minutes. Using a clean, lint free soft cloth, gently wipe away the excess gel stain. Allow to dry at least 5 to 12 hours and reapply additional coats until the desired level of color saturation is achieved.
