This stain features the low-odor and easy cleanup of water-based stains, while emulating the easy spreading, blending, repairability and generous open times of oil-based stains. The blend of high-quality dyes and pigments provides rich, even color, and the heavier bodied formula allows controlled penetration, reducing blotching on hard-to-stain woods such as Aspen, Pine and Maple. Non-flammable and free of harsh chemicals and toxic vapors. Ideal for use with children's toys and furniture.

  • Apply liberally with a foam brush or a paint pad applicator.
  • Dry time is normally 1-2 hours under ideal conditions (70°F, 70% humidity).
  • Cooler temperatures/higher humidity will prolong dry time up to 8-10 hours.
  • If necessary, thin with 10-20% water.
  • Coverage: 150 sq. ft. per quart.

Note:Simply mix 10% to 15% (3-5 fl. oz. per qt.) of EF Extender with any water base stain or finish and mix well.

Loved the water based stain. Easy to apply, dried in perfect working time, looks great, and everything cleaned up with soap and water, including me. Thanks

Great Coverage
I like to use this stain on oak because it covers so well with the ability to de-emphasize the grain. I use two coats and then a gel stain (Honey Maple) to give it a smooth warming glow. Finish with Spar Varnish two coats. Note that this water based stain is compatible with the solvent based gel stain and overcoat. My project is a storage cabinet for our Granddaughter's home school, homework.

Great stain
I really like the stain.....but I'm dubious about the conditioner. I tested the stain with and without the conditioner on maple...and the color pattern was exactly the same. I tried a couple of oil base stains, none had the "depth" of color when compered to this water base stain.

GF products are great finishes especially for pine, which we use a lot. Since we deal with furniture for children, we find this product especially suited because of it's non-toxicity and environmentally friendly qualities. That and it's just great to work with.

When I stain open pore wood like QS white oak, once the stain has dried you can see some "bare wood" showing through in the open grain. I am assuming that the water is exposing more "new" fibers in the grain. Adding more stain darkens the color which I do not want. How can I deal with these tiny open areas? I have sanded to 220 grit, and also sprayed water on the wood to pre raise the grain and then lightly sanded with 220 again. I have applied with rag, brush, foam and HVLP with same results. Do I lightly tint a water based top coat? use grain filler with tint? Any ideas?

BEST ANSWER: One of the major things your doing wrong is sanding to 220 you have burnished the wood so the the stain won't take. Go back and begin sanding at about 100 or 120 and don't sand any finer than 180, 150 would be even better. Now try applying your stain again you should have much better results. If not try calling General Finishes to see if they have any better suggestions.
