Apply: Work in a well ventilated area, such as a garage or outside.  Apply one coat of wood stain liberally with a good quality brush or clean lint-free rag. Allow to penetrate for 2-3 minutes then remove excess stain by wiping with a rag in the direction of the grain.

Finish: Allow stain to dry for 1 hour. For added protection, apply one coat of Varathane Triple Thick Polyurethane. Let dry for 2 hours.

 

Tip: Apply a test sample on a small inconspicuous area before proceeding with the entire job. 

Preparation: If your stars are not pre-drilled, drill holes a using a 1/8” drill bit. Make sure your stars are clean and free from any dust, dirt or debris. Work in a well ventilated area, such as a garage or outdoors. Over a drop cloth or Kraft paper, shake your can of spray paint vigorously for one minute after the mixing ball begins to rattle.

Apply: Hold your can of spray paint 10-16" (if using Stops Rust Metallic) or 8-12” (if using Universal Metallic) from surface, spray in a steady back-and-forth motion, slightly overlapping each stroke. Apply two or more light coats a few minutes apart to avoid drips and runs.
