Behlen StainI love this stuff. My grandfather was a carpenter and crafted furniture. This stuff reminds me of that. Gives it an old authentic look.
Beautiful depth of colorUser should read about this dye, & decide how much to mix up for a large project. The reducer was perfect for giving me time to apply the dye, & getting the right color. I ordered a darker color & added enough reducer to get my color. It is more work, but the results are worth the finished look. I applied my blend by hand as it gave me more control. Apply with brush along grain & wipe with cotton rag.
True BlackAfter trying many brands of dyes and stains to get a true, deep, jet black color, I discovered Solar Lux and have not used any other product since. In my sculpting business, people often think the jet black applied to maple is black granite. The quality is consistent and works wonders for the sale of my sculptures.
Color ChangeI used to buy this stain in Medium brown mahogany" all the time when I refinished furniture and it was always VERY red...too red for being supposedly brown. Now when I ordered it and wanted the reddish color it is now actually a perfect "medium brown mahogany". They must have changed the color formulation and made it what it is supposed to be...but it is different from what it was and from what I was expecting."
Secret Stain of The Old MastersRestoring an antique with red mahogany finish and want original museum quality color? Behlen Solar Lux NGR Stain in Medium Brown Mahogany is the EXACT color of almost all 1880 - 1950 Red Mahogany wood furniture and Mahogany finishes. It does not stain the wood, it DYES the wood and will not leave splotchy color ever. Its always even and perfect regardless of wood. Brush it on, let it stand for 30 seconds and wipe it off. Beautiful, clear wood grain will show and spectacular ORIGINAL color. The stain does not sit on the surface as oil stains do which is why it is so even and perfectly balanced when it dries. It will NOT raise the grain. Try it!
