EF Wood Stains by General Finishes have been created with technology new to water base stains. Our new EF Stains have all the advantages of oil base stains: they spread easily, can be repaired, can be blended effortlessly, and have plenty of open time. The thicker formula allows controlled penetration, which will reduce blotching on hard-to-stain woods such as Aspen, Pine and Maple. This stain formula will make wood staining an enjoyable experience for you. The digitized colors shown are for reference purposes only. Always test stain on a hidden area of the wood to verify desired color.
