Calgary Gel Staining

Gel stain is a highly pigmented oil stain that is specially designed for use on hard to stain surfaces. Gel stain is great at giving synthetic materials a natural wood look.

Gel Staining Process:

  1. The First step is to clean everything with either a strong degreaser like TSP or a thinning solution.

  2. Next we tape off all areas not being stained with painters grade masking tape.

  3. Once the prep is done we can apply atleast 2 coats of gel stain. For a darker more solid look we apply additional coats to meet the desired look.

  4. After the stain has cured for atleast 48hrs we can apply a poly-urethane or spar-urethane clear finish.

  5. Once we are finished gel staining we clean everything up and restore the work area to its prior state.

For all our gel staining services we recommend going with these high quality products from OldMasters brand stain.
