Consequently, can you mix stain with polyurethane?
One step stain and polyurethane finishes for wood have become popular in recent years. The limited number of available colors in the stain is a major downfall, but a person can mix the stain and polyurethane himself to get the shade he wants.
One may also ask, do you have to remove polyurethane before staining? Coating Selection Polyurethane stain blends are available in the most-common wood stain colors. They are applied over the old finish, and aren't designed to soak in, so you don't have to sand or strip off the polyurethane.
Also to know, can you stain over water based polyurethane?
2 Answers. This should be ok if you gave the stain 3-4 days to properly dry out. You'll want the oil-based drying agent to completely vaporize from the stain before applying the water-based finish. You may apply the Minwax Water Based Polyurethane over a fully cured Minwax Wood Finish Stain (oil-based).
Can you stain over finished wood?
It is possible to apply stain over varnish, as long as you aren't expecting results similar to those when staining untreated wood that drinks in the stain. Clean and rough-up the varnish first to remove any grime, dust or debris and also to give the surface some texture the stain can cling to.
