About this deal
Two primary topcoat types dominate the market: oil-based and water-based, each bringing its own set of pros and cons to the table. Once you have finished sanding the entire surface, the next step is to raise the grain. This is a particularly important step if you will be using a water-based finish. Raising the grain is necessary after sanding, as there will often be a few wood fibers bent over. If you finish pine with a water-based stain, then the water will swell the bent fibers, leaving you with a rough finish. Raising the grain is achieved by dampening the entire surface, then sanding over it with a 400-grit sandpaper.
A. Wood Stain is designed to penetrate into the wood and so the longer you leave it on the more it will soak in and the darker the wood will become. Wood can also only absorb so much stain before it becomes saturated and so any excess would then dry on the surface. This is why we recommend wiping the stain off after one or two minutes. Plus, there is a high possibility of oil-based stains turning into a slight yellow color gradually due to high volatile organic content while water-based stains will remain in their natural clear finish forever.
Best Exterior Stain for Pine
Beyond choosing a stain colour that complements the wood, understanding different stain types is crucial. Oil-based stains, gel stains, and water-based stains each have their pros and cons. Once your pine wood is prepared, it's time to apply the stain. Choose a stain that complements the natural colour of the pine and aligns with your desired aesthetic. This technique gives you greater control over the final color and minimizes any unevenness caused by the wood’s grain patterns.
The conditioner helps the stain penetrate evenly into the wood and prevents it from looking blotchy. THIS IS HUGE and you don’t want to skip this step. It gives the wood a more professional look in the end.
