Finishing Products – Water Based

Search By Category

Water-based stains are heavily pigmented, strong colors, quick drying and need only occasional stirring. They rely on the texture of the surface and your technique for the result. They will give a more even tone between different woods.  (Example: A bay window in a house is many types of pine. Oil-based stains may make it look like a patch-worked quilt. Water based will give a more even color overall).

Water-based top coats, polyacrylics, are milky white in the can and dry clear. They do not change the color of the stain or paint. They dry quickly and must be lightly sanded between coats to give each following coat something to adhere to. Buff with brown paper after the final coat for that smooth-to-the-touch finish.
