Default More on Krylon Cedar spray stain

Recently Bobby Lee showed us a sign he had stained with Kylon's spray on Cedar Stain. I finally got a can from Amazon and thought I'd show a side-by-side comparison on a piece of 'white wood' panel sold by Lowe's. As you can see, the transparent stain gives even the cheap wood a nice look with the grain showing through. Just the stain was applied to the top half and no other finish has been added. Thanks again to Bobby Lee for the heads up on where to buy it. I'm looking forward to using it on some future signs.

@Gaffboat That is a purty doggone stain. I like a touch of red, and this looks Goldilocks (just right).

It's a spray can, Herb and I didn't notice any objectionable fumes.

I bought the same brand, Krylon, but in a Red Wood Stain. I used it on a Red Wood bench I'm repairing and it took nearly 2 days in 90 direct sunlight to dry. It's beautifully stained now.....but took way too long to dry.

Sad part is.....now I have to finish the rest of the picnic table bench I started staining......and I'm not so sure I have that many "hot day" left to dry this thing out when I stain it.

But the Cedar stain seems to be a lot quicker dry compound.

It might be the humidity or the paint is old.

That looks like a colour that I need for a future project where I want to match some pieces. Thanks BobbyLee and Oliver.

Your welcome for the heads up Oliver. Side by side comparison looks great. Only thing I could possibly add would be a lighter touch when spraying so that you get the lighter hues instead of a solid color. My test piece looked exactly like your test piece when I first sprayed it. mine looked a little heavy. So when I sprayed the customer's sign I sprayed much lighter and was pleasantly pleased with the results. Not going to let my test piece go to waste though as seen. Will get sanded when done and then lightly sprayed.
