Yes, FolkArt® Stains can be used as an antiquing medium on flat and satin finishes. Stain will not adhere to glossy finishes.
Air drying is best for the FolkArt® Stains. If a hair dryer or fan is used, the wood may warp. Using cold air can create a milky finish and can cause the color of the stain to change.
FolkArt® Stains can be applied by one of two methods:
  1. Brush-on Method – brush on with a foam brush, then wipe off with a clean, soft cloth.
  2. Wipe-on Method – moisten a soft cloth with the stain and rub surface to be stained, then wipe off with a clean, soft cloth. This method allows more wood grain to show through the finish.
FolkArt® Stains apply best to a smooth surface. For best results, sand the surface in the direction of the grain. Wipe the surface with a clean, dry cloth before staining to remove any residue left from sanding.
