Minwax Stains (1 Gallon)
DID YOU KNOW THAT…
Minwax® stains can be mixed together to create custom tones. For example, it’s easy to lighten any tone of Minwax® Wood Finish™ by adding Minwax® Wood Finish™ Natural. Before mixing wood tones, look at the predominant color of the wood you are matching. Is it reddish, grayish, blondish or yellowish? Use a stain with that hue as your base and add lesser amounts of a secondary stain until you reach the desired tint or tone. Try not to mix more than three wood tones at a time. That way it’s easier to control and replicate the outcome. Be sure to mix enough to complete the entire project.
You can use stains to give inexpensive wood expensive-looking appearance. But, you must use wood with a similar grain. For example, if you want to stain a less expensive wood to achieve a cherry appearance, you must use a wood like maple, which has a tight-grained pattern similar to cherry. Likewise, poplar is often used as a substitute for white oak.
