Wood stain is abosorbed into the wood, so the wood takes on the color of the stain. This is why the features of the wood are still visible, unlike with paint.

Stain soaks into wood and changes the colour, or if clear stain, brings out the wood's natural colour..

that's when its best to stain it, because it makes the stain soak in more and makes it last longer The type of stain you are using will determine what the moisture content of the wood needs to be. Some wood deck stains such as Ready Seal require the wood to be very dry.

Stain first, the caulk will not colour the same as the wood when you stain them. Then find a caulking that comes close in colour.

No. In order for the stain to what it is supposed to do [color the wood], it must reach the wood surface. Oil paint coats the wood surface and prevents the stain from reaching it.

Wood stain is a substance that you can use to change the color of wood. It comes in many different shades, both light and dark.

It could look blotchy depending on the type of wood and if it's a colored stain.

Prepare the wood to the finish you require using grades of sandpaper, then follow the instructions for applying the stain as printed on the packaging containing the stain.

Depends on the type of stain and wood. I would recommend you sand the original stain off (this should take 5 - 10 mins with a power sander and some 120 or 240 grit paper) then wipe clean with a cloth before applying the other stain.

Generally there are two reasons people will choose to stain their wood. For interior wood it is for asthetic purposes. The wood is stained to a color that matches the general decour of the space in which the wood will be used. For exterior wood, in addition to the asthetic benifits, the pigment in the stain will help to proitect the wood from UV damage caused by the sun.

I agree with Charles. I would also sand the piece of wood with the stain a bit then apply the darker stain.

There are various ways and methods of removing the solid wood stain from the pressure treated woods. The methods includes sanding and refinishing it and striping the stain and replacing it.

No. Do not prime any wood if you are going to stain it. Stains penetrate wood fibers, while primer and paint remain on the surface of the wood. If you put a primer on first, it will cover the grain and the stain won't work.

Wood varies in density.

A stain is used to color the wood while a varnish is a topcoat used to protect the wood.

User Avatar

You must stain the wood before applying a sealer, so that the stain can penetrate into the wood. If sealer goes on first, the stain will just smear and remain sticky.

The amount of time it takes for wood stain to dry depends on the stain and on the amount of humidity in the air. Most will dry within 24 hours.
