    Details

    General Finishes® Oil-Based Gel Topcoats and Stains are quite possibly the easiest of all finishes to use and achieve a "hand-rubbed" look without all the work. Application is easy with a foam brush or lint free cloth. The heavy bodied gel formulation permits the product to flow out evenly (no drips or runs) preventing uneven penetration for consistent color control. Combined with no sanding (your choice to sand or not) between coats and a quick “re-coat” time, you’ll be finished sooner with less effort and better results than ever before.

    Features:

    • This is the stain that has the most "finishing feel" of all General Finishes' products
    • Woodworkers love the lustrous finish that shows up
    • Heavy-bodied, and so does not penetrate as deeply into the wood as liquid oil-base stains do
    • Can help you get a more even appearance on difficult woods such as aspen or pine
    • Easy-to-use stains simply wipe on with a cloth or applied with a foam brush (no spills or splashes)

      Great for the final few coats

      Definitely avoids drips and runs on vertical surfaces and leaves a beautiful satin finish with minimal sanding between coats. I seal with 2-3 coats of regular poly sanded to even the surface and then use the top coat for my final 2-3 coats.

      It's easy to use and looks great!

      I have been using the Minwax stuff from a big box store, but this is a far superior product. Lays really fine and streak free. The satin is more of a flat finish and was just what I was looking for. Try it, you'll really like it although it does take a bit of time to dry. It's worth the wait.
