Manns Classic Pine Stain must be sealed with a top coat system, such as a wood varnish, wax or wood oil.
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 can 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.
