Oil based Wood Stains are made from the highest quality oils, resins, and pigments to insure your finishing project will be an easy and rewarding experience. As a testimony to the stains' overall excellence, several woodworking magazines have awarded GF Stains their highest recommendations in national competitions. They have been foolproof for over 40 years! The stain colors are current, exciting and offer you a wide range of choices: White Mist, Honey, Honey Maple, Maple, Light Oak, Pecan, Salem, Danish Teak, Candlelight, Warm Cherry, Antique Cherry, American Walnut, Mahogany, and Spiced Walnut.

This is the stain that has the most "finishing feel" of all our products. Woodworkers love the lustrous finish that shows up when rubbing out the 2nd and 3rd coats. Gel Stains are formulated with a combination of pigments, oils, and urethanes to produce a durable and beautiful "hand-rubbed" finish. Gel Stains are heavy-bodied, and so do not penetrate as deeply into the wood as liquid oilbase stains do. Because of this, they are often less affected by the condition of the wood, and can help you get a more even appearance on difficult woods such as aspen or pine. These easy-to-use stains simply wipe on with a cloth or applied with a foam brush (no spills or splashes). Gel Stains are available in: Golden Pine, New Pine, Prairie Wheat, Colonial Maple, American Oak, Candlelite, Nutmeg, Antique Walnut, Brown Mahogany, Georgian Cherry, and Java.

Milk Paints are the star of the furniture fashion market. They are interior/exterior acrylic paints suitable for indoor or outdoor furniture, crafts, and cabinets and can be applied directly from the can to produce a high quality satin sheen finish. When used with Glaze Effects, you can create all the new decorative finishes such as distressing, antiquing, marble effects, rag rolling, or color washing. High use flat surfaces such as dining tables and desks will develop the patina of every day life over time so we recommend clear or wood stain finishes to our customers who are patina-adverse. Milk Paints can be used alone or mixed with any other product in the General Finishes Water Based line, including Wood Stains, and Topcoats. Milk Paints are available in the following colors: Snow White, Antique White, Linen, Millstone, Outback Brown, Little Pink, Buttermilk Yellow, Somerset Gold, Sage Green, Bayberry Green, Basil, Cypress Green, Red Pepper, Autumn Haze, Brick Red, Tuscan Red, Baby Blue, Federal Blue, Coastal Blue and Lamp Black.

Glaze Effects are translucent water based colors used to create beautiful decorative finishes such as distressing, marble, shabby chic, burnishing, color washing, rag rolling and wood graining. Use over Water Based Wood Stains, and Milk Paints. Glaze Effects can be inter-mixed or layered to create custom colors. They may also be layered over one another to create deeper, richer looks. Glaze Effects are available in the following colors: Winter White, Yellow Ochre, Red Sienna, Burnt Umber, Van Dyke Brown and Pitch Black.

Arm-R-Seal topcoats are made with only the highest quality urethane resin, making them extremely durable and long lasting. They are formulated to be wiped on with a cloth or applied with a foam brush, thus eliminating drips and sags. They penetrate to provide deep down protection and that " natural" look.

Arm-R-Seal is available in Satin, Semi-Gloss, and Gloss.
