Staining

I purchased the Minwax Polyshades (it's stain and poly in one).  This is my first time staining furniture.  I'm wondering if i need to wipe of the excess with this product as i would with a regular stain?

 

Thanks!

Hi:smileyhappy:

 

 

The POLYSHADES product is much like a paint - in that it is brushed on and smoothed out with a good soft bristle brush.

 

 

Even though it's a transparent product - you will only have a short time to work with it. You will want to prevent "build up" so that the finish doesn’t drip or run.   Double checking the area you just did before moving on is the best practice.  Be careful not to go back and brush over after 5 minutes - because it will add another layer of color and look inconstant.

 

 

Hope this helps.   paiintpro.JPG
