What will happen if the stain goes on white paint?

Will it be sticky and not dry well?

Thanx!

you need to rub it down with a sander first.

They make sandpaper and paint removers for a reason.

do they make sandpaper "gloves"?

The whole point of stain is to absorb into wood.

Itll generally look terrible. Itll look like dirty stains on white paint.Thats what I tried to do. Generally speaking obviously stain is supposed to stain wood ---- get absorbed into the wood. I was wondering if solid stains could be used as a kind of paint and theres another thing called gel stains. Solid stains arent transparent but they are thin and watery enough to let the texture of the wood through though no color. Gel stains are like goopy stains. They claim you can use it on fiberglass doors because they cling and often have polyurethane in it.

I tried it on a blonde-ish medicine cabinet that was partially real finished wood and veneered with printed paper. ive seen some cable TV projects which claimed to come out OK but I thought it looked terrible. I ended up cleaning it all off with turpentine. Maybe with some skill you can create a fake stain look.

No, it won't work. However, you could strip and repaint. My cabinets were painted white and everyone told my I'd never get the paint off and stain them to look right. The doors and veneer on the cabinets is a nice Ash, so I don't see why someone painted them in the first place. Anyway, with some strong stripper, a sander and a lot of elbow grease I got 'em stripped. They're now stained in a nice Special Walnut stain with satin Spar Urethane finish. Everyone raves about them and some don't believe they're the same cabinets. I wish I had pics. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border=0>

You can, but why? It'll look like crap.

The purpose of stain is to soak into the wood pores. Different parts of the wood have different pores. The area with more pores will get darker after staining. Those streaks of darker areas is what makes stained wood attractive.

The white paint will most likely have covered all the wood pores, so staining it will result in just a uniform darker finish. It'll be brown, but it won't look like wood.

Thanx all!


I understand now.


Best!
