Manns Classic Oak Stain must be sealed with a top coat system such as a wood varnish, wood oil or wood wax.
Please note: After applying Manns Wood Stain and before applying a varnish, oil or wax top-coat, it is essential that the surface of the wood is denibbed or lightly sanded. All traces of sanding dust must then be thoroughly removed with a vacuum cleaner. Failure to do this may result in adhesion issues with varnish or lacquer top-coats. This is especially so with the 'white' wood stain.
White wood stains need special care when finishing. Clear top-coats such as varnishes and oils often make white wood stains appear 'creamy' or 'off-white'. It is recommended that you contact us when considering a top-coat for a white wood stain.

If using a water-based top coat, apply the first coat thinly, passing over the surface with few strokes to avoid any lifting or dragging of the stain. Apply the second coat as normal, de-nibbing between coats.
