Our range of oil based products include Gel Stains, the simple answer for staining more porous wood (e.g. pine and oak).
This is the stain that has the most "finishing feel" of all our products. Woodworkers love the lustrous finish that shows up when rubbing out the 2nd and 3rd coats. Gel Stains are formulated with a combination of pigments, oils, and urethanes to produce a durable and beautiful "hand-rubbed" finish. Gel Stains are heavy-bodied, and so do not penetrate as deeply into the wood as liquid oilbase stains do. Because of this, they are often less affected by the condition of the wood, and can help you get a more even appearance on difficult woods such as aspen or pine.
These easy-to-use stains simply wipe on with a cloth or applied with a foam brush (no spills or splashes).
This product is now discontinued and FINAL stocks. Please see our new Oil/Water Formulation, Water Based Wood Stains for the best and easiest to use stains.
The digitised colours shown are for reference purposes only. Please test your stain on a hidden area of the wood to verify your colour.
