Not at all but I did "apply liberally", it almost pooled on the top as I
applied but I immediately wiped the excess off each section at a time.
Basically the stuff is so thin that it penetrates immediately so you
need to apply enough so that you get good coverage. Not complicated, it
takes 4~10 seconds to understand how much to apply.
Now General Finishes also makes a "regular" water based stain which is
much thicker by comparison and is a bit easier to deal with and raises
the grain a bit less.
And the results here with the "non dye" water based stain.
I was going for a nonformal country look here. My grandmother pained
these 50 years ago.
