General Finishes Gel Stain-Carbon Gray

Gel Stains are formulated with a combination of pigments, oils, and urethanes to produce a durable and beautiful "hand-rubbed" finish.Woodworkers love the lustrous finish that shows up when rubbing out the 2nd and 3rd coats.Gel Stains are heavy-bodied, and so do not penetrate as deeply into the wood as liquid oilbase stains do. Because of this, they are often less affected by the condition of the wood, and can help you get a more even appearance on difficult woods such as aspen or pine.Please note that gel stain is an oil-based product, and needs dry for 72 hours and be completely dry before applying the topcoat.
