Did I make a mistake? A beautiful deck offers the family a warm oasis for rest following a hard day's work.
Your best bet is to go over it again will another coat of stain, then wipe it off lightly with a dry cloth while the stain is still wet. What should I do?
All done! I am wondering why this happened?
I took the advice above of applying another coat and wiping down and it worked! We sanded them all, applied a pre-stain conditioner, and then applied one coat of Minwax Polyshades Stain and Polyurethane in One.
This time, after one night with the fan blowing, it was dry to the touch.
We built a desk using new wood. I applies 4 coats of varathan oil based stain. Around the Yard. I remember the same thing happened when I did some window sills. Ask Question.How to Apply Varathane Ultimate Wood Stain
Add a drying agent such as Japanese drier or Cobalt Drier. Name required.
We open in a week. It is unusually cold here yesterday and today- therefore I have not opened the windows for additional ventilation. Allow the wood to dry completely, sand the piece down to bare wood, and apply a coat or two of stain, wiping off any excess.
Do I do the restain, wipe off process? Foot traffic plus the general wear from the outdoor elements adds up, and decks often need to be re-stained every two or three years.
