Jo Sonja Wood Stain Gels are manufactured using transparent pigments to lightly color the surface without the ‘milking or hazing’ associated with the use of opaque colors.  These colors and their performance may be modified by mixing with other gels and/or used in combination with Chroma’s Jo Sonja Artists Colors and Mediums. Use for staining, color glazing, antiquing or for Faux Finishes such as Faux Bois, Burl or Vinegar Graining techniques.

• On porous surfaces, prepare for staining by applying one coat of Clear Glaze Medium to assure even absorption of the stain including cut edges. Sand when dry. Non-porous surfaces require light sanding for surface preparation.
• Apply stain using a brush appropriate for surface size. Dress the brush in a small amount of Retarder. Pick up Wood Stain Gel and blend together well on the palette. This is recommended to extend the working time and will also increase the transparency of the color.  Several light coats are recommended and easier to control than a heavy application.
• Brush onto the surface and use a soft, lint free cloth to remove excess stain or even out the layer as desired. Allow to dry well. Drying may be accelerated using a hair dryer and cool air. To deepen color, repeat stain application as soon as the previous coat has dried. Alternate colors for rich color and depth.
• Edges of color may be deepened by color glazing or antiquing with Retarder as needed.
• Wood Stain Gels may be used for antiquing or Faux Finishes. A barrier coat of Clear Glaze Medium may be applied if desired to protect the painting and extend the open time of the antiquing or Faux Finish.
• For a pickled or aged patina, Pickling White Gel may be tinted with color and used as antiquing.

Color may dry slightly dull. Varnish application will return the vibrancy to your colors.

Approximate coverage: 1 ml = 62 sq cm / 1 oz = 2 sq ft
