Aqua Tone Stain is a general purpose stain for all interior applications which is made from the highest quality aniline dyes and pigments. It penetrates deeply into the wood and has excellent pigmentation stability creating a more transparent uniform finish. Can be applied by spray, foam pad, synthetic brush, and wiped.
This fast drying, non-bleeding, non-fading stain produces an even tone on all woods with low grain raise and is suited for production. Designed for use on all interior wood surfaces, millwork, cabinets, furniture, moldings, giftware, toys and crafts.
An infinite range of colors can be made by mixing two or more Aqua Tone stains. Standard colors can be thinned with Aqua Tone “Clear” Stain Base to produce lighter stains.
Q.) How do you apply Aqua Tone Stain
A.) Mix well prior to use. DO NOT shake. Straining is recommended before spray application. Can be thinned up to 50% with Aqua Tone Clear Stain Base if desired.
Apply using preferred method, dip or spray evenly. Wipe off excess. One coat is usually enough for most applications. A second coat of stain may be applied within 30 minutes if more color is desired which will increase color depth and grain definition. Allow one hour before top coating with Aqua Coat finish. Drying time is about 45-60 minutes, though it will vary with temperature humidity and porosity of wood. Coverage is 450 to 600 square feet per gallon unreduced, approximately.
NOTE: If one container of stain will not be enough to finish the entire piece, mix stain from second container with some of the first to ensure consistent stain tone.
"I absolutely love your products. The top is done with a single coat of your Aqua Tone water-based stain, followed by 2-3 coats of your water-based clear satin top coat, sprayed. I've been using this approach for years, and never a customer complaint."
