Java Oil-Based Gel Stain from General Finishes is the most popular color by far. It’s a super rich and deep brown…almost like an espresso color. It looks absolutely gorgeous on just about everything! It’s a great color to choose if you have a surface that needs some imperfections to be covered over.
Gel Stain is heavy-bodied and does not penetrate as deeply into raw wood as water-based wood stains do. Its gel-like consistency makes it easy to control and spread, and its oil-based formula provides great open time. Gel Stains provide the deepest, richest colors of any oil-based stain available!
