WARNING! Removal of old paint by sanding, scraping or other means may generate dust or fumes that contain lead. Exposure to lead dust or fumes may cause brain damage or other adverse health effects, especially in children or pregnant women. Controlling exposure to lead or other hazardous substances requires the use of proper protective equipment such as a properly fitted respirator (NIOSH approved) and proper containment and cleanup. For more information, call the National Lead Information Center at 1-800-424-LEAD (in US) or contact your local health authority.
•Sand raw wood smooth. Sand old finishes lightly to aid adhesion. Remove all sanding dust.
•Surface must be dry and free from wax, grease, and dust. Do not use over paint, lacquer, shellac, polishes or products containing stearates.
•Pre-treat raw soft or porous woods, such as pine and alder, with Minwax® Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner. This will help the wood absorb the stain color more evenly. Apply stain within two hours of pre-treatment.
•Stir well before and occasionally during use.
•Test stain on a hidden area to verify desired color.
•Two coats are recommended for maximum beauty and protection.
•Brush on a THIN, EVEN COAT in the direction of the grain. Be sure to maintain a wet edge.
•Let dry 6 hours or more, then rub surface with fine steel wool (grade 000 and finer). Remove all dust.
•Brush on a second THIN coat.
•You may apply more than two coats if you want to deepen the color.
COVERAGE: Approximately 120-150 square feet per quart.
