Use it to stain any type of wood for indoor or outdoor use!
A highly concentrated wood stain that effectively colours wood in one simple application. The formulation is water based and so is safe to use in all environments, as it has a very low odour and is non-toxic.
Our Wood stain is specially formulated to evenly dye wood, ensuring equal and even colour penetration throughout. The stain dries to a natural matt finish in only 10 minutes and has excellent coverage.
After staining wood, you should finish the job by sealing the stain in with one of our Wood Waxes or Wood Oils. These will bring out the colour of the stain further, provide additional protection and can be used to alter the finish to either satin or gloss.
You can use Wood Stain on any wood, just make sure it has been thoroughly cleaned and any old finishes removed.

New Wood – Needs to be sanded first to create a lovely smooth finish. Sand first with 120g sandpaper, then with 240g and again with 320g. This process will help even out the surface creating a lovely smooth finish for the stain to absorb into.
Used Wood - If the wood is old it may be painted or varnished. If so, remove any old coatings using our Paint & Varnish Remover. Or, if the wood has been treated with an oil or wax, wipe the surface down with Thinners or Mineral Spirit to remove this. After removing the old finish, sand smooth with 320g sandpaper.
Pine & Softwoods – Once you have prepared the surface as above you should apply a Pre-Stain Conditioner. This is because softwoods absorb wood stains in an uneven fashion and could come out blotchy once stained.
In all instances, ensure the surface is clean and any saw dust & dirt has been removed.
If you are unsure of the colour, test it on an unseen area first. The stain can be applied with either a Lint Free Cloth or a brush. Apply the stain liberally going in the direction of the grain, leave it to soak in for a minute or two and then wipe any excess of using a Lint Free Cloth.
The longer you leave the excess on the surface to soak in the deeper/richer the colour will appear. We therefore recommend to remove it after only a minute or two and if it dries too light, you can apply another coat. However, if you apply too much and it dries too dark, it is much harder to sand, strip and then re-stain the wood!
After wiping off the excess you’ll need to wait for about 10 minutes for the stain to thoroughly dry. Once it’s a dry a second coat can be applied if desired; applied in the same way as the first.
Finishing & Maintenance
After staining the wood it should be finished with a varnish, oil or wax. The Wood Stain is colourfast once dry but by applying a finish you can;
- Increase protection against water and staining.
- Enhance the colour of the stain; an oil or wax will really bring out the colour.
- Increase the shine of the wood.
- Seal in the stain to help it age better.
The wood should then be maintain as per the instructions for your chosen finish.
