Gel Stains and Gel Varnishes are an excellent solution to hand applied finishing requirements.  They are simple to use and minimize the effects of blotching on many difficult woods.

 

Beautiful tones can be achieved by staining with one color of gel stain, allowing it to dry for six hours, and then overstaining with a different color.  Because Gel Stains are semi—transparent, the overstaining creates a different look than had the same colors been mixed in a can and then applied.

 

Gel stains also produce fantastic results when used in combination with ColorFX Dye Stains.  Very easy to produce, deep, even tones are generated when dying the bare wood surface and then follow with an application of a matching (even contrasting) gel stain.

 

A simple "Espresso" finish on new wood is developed by using the ColorFX Vandyke Brown dye, followed by General Finishes Java Gel stain.

 

The General Finishes line of Gel stains and topcoats have become very popular for customers re-finishing kitchen cabinetry and bathroom vanities.  As with all re-finishing projects, thorough cleaning and preparing test areas for evaluation are an absolute requirement prior to committing to the entire project.

 

The final protective finish is a simple wipe-on application of Gel Topcoat Urethane or for those who prefer a brush-on final finish, we now offer General Finishes High Performance Polyurethane.
