  • Techniques
    On porous surfaces, prepare for staining by appyling one coat of Clear Glaze Medium to assure even absorption of the stain including cut edges. Sand when dry. Non-porous surfaces require light sanding for surface preparation.
    Apply stain using a brush appropriate for surface size. Dress the brush in a small amount of Retarder. Pick up Wood Stain Gel and blend together well on the palette. This is recommended to extend the working time and will also increase the transparency of the colour. Several light coats are recommended and easier to control than a heavy application.
    Brush onto the surface and use a soft, lint free cloth to remove excess stain or even out the layer as desired. Allow to dry well. Drying may be accelerated using a hair dryer and cool air. To deepen colour, repeat stain application as soon as the previous coat has dried. Alternate colours for rich colour and depth.
    Edges of colour may be deepened by colour glazing or antiquing with Retarder as needed.
    Wood Stain Gels may be used for antiquing or Faux Finishes. A barrier coat of Clear Glaze Medium may be applied if desired to protect the painting and extend the open time of the antiquing or Faux Finish.
    For a pickled or aged patina, Pickling White Gel may be tinted with colour and used as antiquing.
    Colour may dry slightly dull. Varnish application will return the vibrancy to your colours.
