    Details

    General Finishes® Gel 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:

    • Easy-to-use stains simply wipe on with a cloth or applied with a foam brush (no spills or splashes)
    • Heavy-bodied, and so does not penetrate as deeply into the wood as liquid oil-base stains do
    • This is the stain that has the most "finishing feel" of all General Finishes' products
    • Woodworkers love the lustrous finish of final product
    • Gives a more even appearance on hard-to-stain woods like pine, aspen, maple and cherry
    • Great adhesion on raw wood, existing finishes, fiberglass and steel doors

      Java Gel Stain by General

      I refinish Furniture and I make Picture frames and I needed a dark finish. This product brought back to life some old furniture. I now can make my picture frames and cabinets as dark as my customers want them. I must add it is done in one step, not like before, which took several steps, and even at that I was not happy with the results.

      I have been using this product (especially this color) so many years. I love this dark brown natural color.

      Wonderful Product!

      I bought this product to refinish my Grandma's furniture. I found this product by reading the blog of a lady who refinished her bathroom vanity and she swore by it. I have found everything she said to be true. It is so easy to use and the finish is absolutely beautiful! It looks like I have completely new furniture and I love it!

      Great product for the average amateur

      Used product to do mid-century modern dresser that had been painted. Was very satisfied with results. Dresser looks like it just came off the show room floor. Made me look like a pro. Love it!!!
