Jiving with Java Gel Stain

Show us what you have done with Java Gel Stain. This stain that has the most "finishing feel" of all - Woodworkers love the lustrous finish that results from rubbing on 2nd and 3rd coats. Gel Stains are formulated with a combination of pigments, oils, & urethanes to produce a durable and beautiful "hand-rubbed" finish. Gel Stains are heavy-bodied, and do not penetrate as deeply into the wood as liquid oilbase stains do. Available in stores in the US & UK, including Rockler & Woodcraft.

    Hi! Your table looks beautiful. I was wondering if you used a topcoat. If so what did you use and how did the application of it go?

    HI Leanna! Not sure if this table got a top coat but our High Performance Top Coat is a good choice to use over gel stain. It's water based which makes clean up easy and it dries quickly. We do have other options though. Check out this blog post from GF, https://generalfinishes.com.... Hopefully you'll find is useful for helping you choose the right top coat for your project!

    Did you use a topcoat on the java? could you please tell me how you got the top so perfect and shiny?

  • Tammy Krueger

    Wait 48 hrs after you use the Java Gel ( it is oil based) to be sure it is dry and then use the High Performance Topcoat from General Finishes line.

    There are also oil based topcoats but I like the water based.
