How to Apply Water Based Varathane One Step Stain and Polyurethane
Wood Surfaces - Remove any existing coatings using sandpaper or stripper. Prepare bare wood for staining by sanding in the direction of the grain. Begin with #120 grit sandpaper and progress through #150, #180 and #220 grits. Remove all sanding dust with a vacuum or clean rag dampened with mineral spirits.
CONDITIONING - Soft woods such as pine, fir and maple require a wood conditioner. Use Varathane Premium Wood Conditioner before staining.
Use adequate ventilation at all times. Stir thoroughly before use. Do not shake. Apply when temperatures are between 50-90°F (10-38°C) and the relative humidity less than 85%. Apply One Step Stain & Polyurethane using a high quality synthetic bristle brush in the direction of the grain until a uniform film has been achieved. To prevent brush marks, avoid excessive brushing. Additional coats can be applied allowing one hour dry time between coats. Lightly sand between coats with #320 grit sandpaper. Remove all sanding dust before applying additional coats.
