Our Gel Stain and Topcoat is a one-step combination product that is a little bit of stain mixed into a durable topcoat. Some of the colours can be a thick gel or a thin consistency. As you stir the product it becomes less gel-like and is easy to brush on. Multiple coats will create an opaquer finish but the sheen will remain matte. Keep in mind your substrate colour will always show through, however, the more coats you apply the opaque it will become, except Patina as it is our “clear”.

This product is ideal for over all types of surfaces, scratched, uneven, unstable due to chipping as with milk painted surfaces, melamine, laminate, pre-painted or stained wood surfaces. It’s so versatile!

Clean surface of wax or grease. Sanding is NOT required on your clean and dry surface. Adheres well to old finishes. Two coats may be required if the old finish has been worn down to expose a different substrate or the blemishes are severe. If there is an area where there is an old finish as well as any peeling areas, you will need to remove (ensure you take precautions if the old surface is a lead-based coating) the loose peeling substrate until you have a sound surface.


Odourless mineral spirits.


Apply to a clean sound surface free of grease, oil, dirt, shellac, or dust. Do not apply to a surface that is wet, or on asphalt, shellac, vinyl, or linoleum tile.


Stir thoroughly before applying. Do not shake as you will introduce bubbles. Appears as a coloured gel until stirred. Dries to a satin sheen in the colour of your choosing. (One coat is translucent – subsequent coats can build to a solid colour. Test your methods in an inconspicuous area.) Using a brush (or short nap roller – NOT a foam roller-avoid air bubbles). Dry time is approximately 4 hours at 25°C and 50% relative humidity on most porous surfaces and can be longer if applied thickly or to completely sealed surfaces. Apply a thin coat in a dust-free area. Wait 4 hours before recoating if needed. Remember to always test for tackiness before re-coating – if it’s still tacky wait another few hours and re-test. (if subsequent coats are desired or the surface feels bumpy give a light sanding and remove dust before recoating. The first coating should be thinned by 20% by using 1-part mineral spirits and 4 parts gel stain (dry time will be much shorter on this initial coat). When dry area can be lightly used in 24 to 48 hours. Takes approx. 5 days to cure.
