Water and oil

Recommended Posts

So I used a water base conditioner and topped it with a oil based stain. I am using min wax products. The color I am doing is black. What kind of problems will I have. And help would be great as I am building a dinner table.

a water base conditioner may not be compatible with a oil base top coat like polyshades, read the polyshade labe like wd werker said or call jeff jewitt at homestead finishing.

Whenever there is any doubt, there is no doubt...

I never remember, but I believe oil over water generally works, but water over oil doesn't... Again, I never remember... YMMV

Whatever you do, try it out of some scrap first... So if it tanks, it's just scrap and no harm done...

Did you read the back of the can? Minwax is usually good about indicating what prosucts you can use together.

Begs the question, why do you need a conditioner? If your going for black, its not necessary spending coin and time with a conditioner. Just hit the wood with the black.

Or am I missing something???
