In this regard, can you apply solid stain over solid stain?
You can use solid stain over existing solid or semi-transparent stain, but semi-transparent stain over solid stain will look strange and won't last. It's designed to penetrate wood and won't adhere well to a solid coating. You may also choose between water-based (acrylic) and oil-based stains.
Also Know, what is the best solid color wood stain? Best wood stain overall: Varathane Fast Dry Interior Wood Stain. Best solid wood stain: BEHR Premium Solid Color Waterproofing Exterior Wood Stain and Sealer. Best gel wood stain: Minwax Gel Stain. Best water-based wood stain: SamaN Interior Water Based Stain.
Beside this, what is the best way to apply stain?
The basic rule for getting good results with any wood stain is to apply a wet coat and wipe off the excess before it dries. You can use any tool – rag, brush, paint pad, roller or spray gun – to apply the stain. You can even dip the object into stain or pour the stain onto the wood and spread it around.
What does solid stain look like?
Solid color stain looks like paint, but soaks into wood instead of sitting on top of it. As it ages, stain breaks down by fading rather than peeling. Older layers of solid color stain tend to look better than paint does over time.
