SURFACE PREPARATION: The wood surface must be clean, dry and free from dirt, wax, or grease. Sand the wood thoroughly, first with medium grit sandpaper, then progressing to a fine grit paper. Always sand in the direction of the wood grain. Sand smooth, then remove dust particles with a lint-free rag or a tack rag. If staining previously finished surfaces, first restore the surface to bare wood by completely removing the old finish, then follow the surface preparation directions listed above. WARNING! If you scrape, sand or remove old paint, you may release lead dust. LEAD IS TOXIC. EXPOSURE TO LEAD DUST CAN CAUSE SERIOUS ILLNESS, SUCH AS BRAIN DAMAGE, ESPECIALLY IN CHILDREN. PREGNANT WOMEN SHOULD ALSO AVOID EXPOSURE. Wear a NIOSH approved respirator to control lead exposure. Clean up carefully with a HEPA vacuum and a wet mop. Before you start, find out how to protect yourself and your family by contacting the National Lead Information Hotline at 1-800-424-LEAD or log on to www.epa.gov/lead.
APPLICATION: Stir well before and during use. Stain may be brushed, sprayed or wiped onto the surface. Before the stain dries, wipe off excess stain with a soft cloth.

MIXING AND TINTING: Achieve custom colors by intermixing Fast Dry Wood Stain colors or by adding up to 14 ounces of universal or industrial colorant per gallon to any Fast Dry Wood Stain or by adding colorant to Natural/Tint Base Fast Dry Wood Stain. Natural/Tint Base Fast Dry Wood Stain may be used to lighten a Fast Dry Wood Stain color in any proportion or as a tint base to which colorant may be added for ultimate color selection. The amount of colorant added may affect performance and extend dry time.
COVERAGE: Approximately 500 square feet per gallon depending on the porosity and texture of the wood.
DRY TIME: Oil-based finishes may be applied 30 minutes after wiping. Dry times may be extended due to humidity, low temperature, lack of air movement, excess stain application or lack of penetration. Be sure surface is thoroughly dry before topcoating. Ideal drying conditions recommended are 70° to 75°F and 35 to 50% humidity
CLEAN UP: Using a cleaning solvent, such as paint thinner or mineral spirits, is recommended for clean up. The use of paint thinners or mineral spirits may violate VOC compliancy in your area. Check with your local government agencies to ensure proper compliancy. To avoid spontaneous combustion during temporary storage, soak soiled rags and waste immediately after use in a water-filled, closed metal container.
RECOMMENDED FINISH COAT: We recommend Old Masters® clear finishes. However, Fast Dry Wood Stain can be topcoated with virtually any finish including professional finishes such as lacquers and conversion varnishes. Wait 24 hours before topcoating with a water-based clear finish.
