I'm looking for wood stains in aerosol cans. I thought Minwax might have
them but checking the local DIY stores was not successful.
Anyone know if wood satins come in aerosol cans and who makes them?
Re: Why? I have made four small wine racks (each holds 20 bottles) using
white pine. The racks are basically open cages where the bottles run on 1" x
1" rails. I found the design in a local World Market and copied it. The
racks will fit into into small boxes I made which are stained/varnished. Now
SWIMBO has decreed the racks MUST be stained. I guess just staining the ends
could be OK.
If you are unable to reach parts with a brush or rag, make your own spray.
Dump the stain in an old bottle from window cleaner or similar and try that.
You don't need perfect spray patterns like you were doing a paint job.
Paint stores and box stores sell an aerosol unit to be filled with your
own product = glass bottle with can of air that fits on top. Refills of
air can be purchased. They are great for smaller stuff - I tried them
first when I painted louvered closet doors. Beautiful! With paint, it
recommends dilution of ?1:4. Guy at my paint store said he wasn't
allowed to recommend using m.s. to thin, but when I asked if it would
work, he said it works great. Penetrol is used for oil paint, I
believe. Probably would not need to thin stain.
Actually Minwax does have some aerosol spray stains.....I purchased a
few cans to experiment with a few months ago....
But to be honest I have no clue this morning where I purchased
them...but most likely Home Depot or Lowes...
However.... my results were not that great...Took too many coats
to get a look I liked, thus took much longer...and it was actually
more work then just wiping on a liquid stain...
