Should I use Stain & Finishing Oil, or Gel Stain?
If you have a raw wood that has an even surface and lovely grain, we would lean towards using our Stain and Finishing Oil. If you have a sealed, varnished, lacquered or painted wood surface, or a surface that is damaged or scratched we would lean towards the Gel Stain.
It sticks and adheres like nobody’s business! The finish is very durable and easily washable. It is also very forgiving with what it adheres to. If you had a battered, worn down surface that has multiple substrates (stubborn layers of paint) this is an ideal product. Gel Stain is also great if you are trying to camouflage any damage to a piece.
