The resin content of the products is high enough to effectively have them function somewhat as sealers, and the stain will not penetrate the same way it will into bare wood.
Some suggested Work Arounds:
- If a dark stain is being used, coarsely sanding the Sculpwood in the same direction as the grain of the wood before staining can produce a reasonably close match.
- Our Quick Cure Putty is available in 6 standard wood species colors.
- Mix dry pigments or our Epoxy Pigment Concentrates into the paste or putty. This can approximate the color of the stained wood around it.
