finishing tips
Decide which type of stain to use. You could use either an oil based or acrylic based stain. Whichever you
decide, you will also be using the same type of sealer to finish up the staining process. When staining, make
sure the room temperature is between 70° and 75° Fahrenheit for best results. It is very important to test
your stain colors on smaller samples of wood so that you will know exactly how the finish will appear.

STAINING
1. SANDING. American Pro Decor hardwoods are mostly ready to be stained. However, there will instances
where the wood will need to be sanded down to remove scratches, etc. Brush off any debris once sanding
is complete.
2. PRE-STAINING WOODS. Not all woods are uniform in color or texture. Woods are porous with different
densities, therefore, wood will absorb the stain in an uneven manner. To obtain a consistent and even finish,
use a pre-stain wood conditioner found at any home store. The pre-stain wood conditioner should be
applied on the raw wood using a cloth or brush. Allow it to penetrate for about 10 to 15 minutes. Remove
any excess afterwards. The stain should be applied with 2 hours.
3. STAINING. Apply the stain with a wide brush evenly or a rag. Make sure your area is well ventilated. Stains
will produce fumes. When applying, always go with the grain and against the grain as well. The purpose is
to apply the stain to cover all visible surfaces. It depends on how light or dark you need the wood to be. If
you need a lighter look, wipe off the stain immediately. For a darker tone, leave the stain for 5 to 10 minutes
before wiping it. When cleaning off the stain residue, go in the direction of the grain so that the stain will
penetrate into the grain of the wood. If a second coat is required, it is advisable to lightly sand the wood
with the 120 grit sandpaper and wipe off any debris. Brushes are better for staining ornate carvings and
other hard to reach areas. Rags are best for flat surfaces. If you are an experienced wood worker, you could
achieve an antique finish by using watered down black paint and brush it into the cracks and details or your
wood ornaments. After a few minutes of applying the watered down black paint, wipe off any excess. This
will add a beautiful accent to your carved wood ornaments.
4. SEALING YOUR WOOD. Remember, stain will only provide color to you wood NOT A FINISH. Therefore, you
need to apply a sealer. Remember to use the same base type of material. That is oil based stain to oil based
sealer, acrylic based stain to acrylic based sealer. Apply using a brush or sprayer. Let it dry. If needed, sand
with 220 grit sandpaper. Wipe clean and apply another coat of the polyurethane sealer. Sealers are mostly
known as varnish, shellac or wood polish.
