Yes! If painting over surfaces stained with Nature’s Wood Stain™ we recommend allowing a full week cure time before painting over the stained surface.

Easy clean up with soap and water.

Yes! Nature’s Wood Stain™ can be sprayed. But requires a quality sprayer, fine mist nozzles, and sometimes a bit of dilution (but only if needed). Always be sure to test your spray pressure, your mist setting, and dilution before attempting on a piece.

Paint sprayer pressure: 1500-2500 psi 

Paint sprayer nozzle: 0.013 - 0.017

Recommended tools to apply Nature’s Wood Stain™ include- quality round brush or 25mm Flat Brush such as the Artisan Enhancements brushes, natural/synthetic bristle brush specified for stain applications, a roller (5-10mm), sponge brush stain applicator, or sprayer (pressure 1500-2500 psi, nozzle 0.013 – 0.017).Review the Nature’s Wood Stain™ Tip Sheet for additional application and cure instructions.

Recoat time: 2 hours

Cure Time: Minimum 72 hours (Optimal 1 week cure before use)Review the Nature’s Wood Stain™ Tip Sheet for additional application and cure instructions.

If desired, additional sealers and wax can be applied to fully cured stained surfaces to increase sheen and smoothness of finish. Allow stained surface to dry for a minimum of 72 hours before applying sealers or wax. After 72 hours of dry-time, additional colored waxes can be layered over the stained surface. Follow wax manufacturer’s instructions for wax application and cure time.

Nature’s Wood Stain™ can be diluted up to 10% but all dilutions will change the characteristics of the stain. Meaning, the color saturation, dry times, cure times, durability and sheen may be different after dilution. If diluting, we recommend starting with a 5% dilution of water on a test sample.

Yes! All Nature’s Wood Stain™ colors can be mixed and layered with other Nature’s Wood Stain™ colors to create custom stain colors and finishes. 

Review the Nature’s Wood Stain™ Tip Sheet for additional application and cure instructions.

For full coverage we recommend two full coats of Nature’s Wood Stain™. Allow the first coat to dry a minimum of 2 hours before applying a second coat. Additional coats should only be applied after the recommended dry/re-coating times have elapsed. If desired, 3-4 coats of stain can be applied. The recommended recoat time between each coat is 2 hours.

Due to the unique formulation of Nature’s Wood Stain™, a surface stained in Nature’s Wood Stain™ does not require an additional sealer if two coats of stain are applied for full coverage. If only applying one coat of stain or a diluted coat of stain, we recommend applying one thin coat of Clear Topcoat sealer before use.

If desired, additional sealers and wax can be applied to fully cured stained surfaces to increase sheen and smoothness of finish. Allow stained surface to dry for a minimum of 72 hours before applying sealers or wax. After 72 hours the surface can be sealed with Artisan Enhancements™ sealers Clear Topcoat or Clear Finish (See Sealer Tip Sheet for proper sealer application). After 72 hours of dry-time, additional colored waxes can be layered over the stained surface.
