Storage of Water-Based Products

Please be mindful of the manner in which water-based products are stored and how long they have been in storage. 

Life of Product
Water-based products have a limited shelf life, but can be prolonged with proper storage. Unopened cans can last 3-5 years if stored correctly. As they age, the product may separate, so be sure to stir well before use.

Always stir thoroughly before using. 

Clumps & Settling
Solids settling at the bottom and slight separation at the top of a can is normal due to gravity. To mix older products, use a paint mixing attachment on a drill. If mixing smooths out any clumps and solids dissolve, the product is good to use. However, if large lumps remain after stirring, it may indicate that the product has frozen and is no longer usable

Storage Tips
To increase the lifespan of water-based finishes, follow these best practices:

  • Use a paint can opener to open the sealed lid to prevent damage
  • Keep the lid closed while working and pour what you need into a separate container
  • Clean the can's chime and avoid wiping brushes on the lid
  • Pound the lid in place with a rubber mallet or flat piece of wood
  • Store in moderate temperatures and upside down to minimize evaporation and crystallization
  • Use alternative storage containers like plastic or glass bottles
  • Do not fill metal containers completely to prevent rusting

Northwest Guitars Water-Based Wood Stain - 250ml

After months of research and testing, we're really excited to introduce our new range of guitar specific water-based wood stains. 

Designed to work best on light coloured woods, these stains will produce a deep vibrant finish, with easy application and relativley quick drying times.

Our stains can be used straight out of the tin, with the mnimum of prep (just sand the unfinished body smooth) and applied with a lint free cloth or sponge appliator. Drying time is around 3 hours. 2 coats tends to be enough for a deep rich finish, but addtional coats can be applied if you're looking for a deeper colour. 

Conversely, if you're looking for a lighter finish, our stains can be easily diluted with water.

All of our coloured stains can also be mixed together to achieve custom shades. 

One 250ml bottle will give you plenty to play with, with enough product to easily complete 2 or 3 guitars.  

Apply with a lint-free cloth or sponge applicator.  Rub away any excess ot achieve even coverage.  Allow to dry and then apply further coats until you reach your desired shade.

Please note: Colour may vary slightly depending on number of coats applied, wood type and preparation method
