- The surface should be clean, dry , sanded
smooth with fine sandpaper.
- Apply stain with Smith & Rodger
staining cloths and wipe off surplus across
the grain. One coat only.
- Allow to dry thoroughly. Drying time
will depend on atmospheric conditions.
- Seal stain with varnish, polish or lacquer.
Some raising of the grain may occur due
to the water content of the stain. Lightly
sand the surface after the first coat of
varnish or lacquer has dried. Avoid heavy
sanding as this may cut through the finish
and remove the stain.
It is not recommended to overcoat with
Aquacoat as some bleeding may occur leading
to an uneven finish. It is advised that
Aquastain should be used beneath our Aquacoat
