General Finish Oil Based Gel Stain

$16.99 - $26.99
Gel Stain from General Finishes is home of the popular Java Gel Stain featured across the nation's social media for upcycling furniture and cabinets. Gel wood stains are heavy-bodied and do not penetrate as deeply into the wood as liquid oil-based wipe-on stains do, providing the deepest, richest colors of any oil-based stain available.

Mixing Gel Colors

-Gel stains can be intermixed to create custom colors.

-Gel Stain can be mixed with no more than 10% Liquid Oil Stain is added by volume. The liquid stain will thin the stain, which may help it spread more easily but it will not have as much coverage.

 Topcoat
-Always seal General Finishes oil-based stains with 3 coats topcoat to lock in the color. You can use either oil-based or water-based topcoat. When layering water-based and oil-based products, increase the dry time:
  • Water over oil: Let oil-based products dry 72+hrs
  • Oil over water: Let water-based products dry 24+hrs

-DO NOT use General Finishes Enduro-Var Topcoat with oil-based products.
