Furthermore, can you varnish over wood stain?
Unlike paint, varnishes and stains are designed to soak into the wood. You can even apply a clear varnish to the stain to improve the finish and also make it more durable.
Beside above, can you varnish over oil based stain? Yes you can. Varnish is oil based and compatible with oil based stains. Just make sure you give the stain ample time to dry. Apply 2 to 3 coats of oil based varnish, sanding lightly between coats.
Also to know is, how long after staining can you varnish?
What is the difference between varnish and stain?
While a stain deeply penetrates wood, a varnish remains on the outside of your surfaces, forming a protective barrier. A varnish is usually clear and transparent, and it will harden along the outer layer of your wood. Some varnishes do include colour to enhance or alter the wood shade.
