FAQ:

Q. How long should Minwax® Wood Finish™ be left on the wood?

Anywhere from a few seconds to 15 minutes. The longer the stain is left on the wood, the deeper it will penetrate. For a light tint, wipe the excess stain off after a few minutes; for deeper, richer color, wait as long as 15 minutes.

Q. Why is it important to wipe off the excess stain?

The colorants in Minwax® Wood Finish™ are designed to be deposited in the wood pores, not on the surface of the wood. Any pigments allowed to remain on top of the wood will impair topcoat adhesion – causing the finish to peel.

Q. Is it necessary to sand after the Minwax® Wood Finish™ has dried?

No. In fact, we advise against it. Sanding will result in the removal of some of the dyes and pigments in the stained wood. Since Minwax® Wood Finish™ does not raise the grain, no sanding is necessary before top-coating.

Q. Does Minwax® Wood Finish™ need to be top-coated?

For added beauty and protection, we recommend topcoating all projects with a protective clear finish such as Minwax® Fast-Drying Polyurethane or Minwax® Polycrylic® Protective Finish.

Q. Can Minwax® Wood Finish™ colors be mixed to create additional colors?

There may be times when a desired stain color can only be achieved by mixing two colors. Experiment with different proportions until the desired color is achieved. Then mix enough stain to complete the entire project to avoid color-matching later.

Q. Why don’t some woods match the colors on the Minwax® product brochures and samples?

Wood can vary in color and pore structure even within the same species. Because every piece of wood is unique, final stain color may vary. While our samples are tested for accuracy, it is always best to first test Minwax® Wood Finish™ on a small, inconspicuous spot on the project.

Directions:

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.

SURFACE PREPARATION:

  • Surface must be dry, clean, and free of dirt, grease, glue, and existing coatings before staining.
  • Sand the wood in the direction of the grain using fine-grade sandpaper (#220) until smooth.
  • Remove all sanding dust.
  • To help ensure uniform acceptance of stain color and beautiful results, pretreat the wood with Minwax® Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner following label directions.

PRODUCT PREPARATION AND COLOR TESTING:

  • Stir stain thoroughly before and occasionally during use. Do not thin.
  • Always test stain on a scrap piece or hidden area of the wood to verify desired color.

STAIN APPLICATION:

  • Apply stain in the direction of the grain with a brush or clean cloth.
  • Allow the stain to penetrate 5-15 minutes to achieve desired color. The more time the stain is allowed to penetrate, the richer and darker the color will be.
  • Remove stain that has not penetrated the wood with a clean cloth. Wipe in the direction of the grain, while blending light and dark areas to obtain uniform color. DO NOT ALLOW STAIN THAT HAS NOT PENETRATED THE WOOD TO DRY ON THE WOOD SURFACE.
  • To darken color, apply a second coat after 4-6 hours, repeating directions for application of first coat. Do not sand between coats of stain.

CLEAR FINISH APPLICATION:

COVERAGE: Approximately 150 square feet per quart.

CLEANUP: Use mineral spirits or paint thinner following manufacturer’s safety instructions.
