Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Results [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this last week to put on a old desk, that I had sanded down to put in my grandson room. My grandson picked out the color he wanted, I wasn't to sure on how it was going to look. So we brushed it on the desk. Went and grabbed some lunch. Came back to the desk and it was just perfect. I love it, the color was just perfect for his room. Thanks to your product. This project ended with great results.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from terrible results I purchased this to refinish a mid-C20 Heywood-Wakefield side table that had previously been painted with a solid color latex paint. After stripping and sanding, I applied the recommended Pre-Stain and let it dry thoroughly before testing the "Wood Finish" on the underside of the table. It was clear from that testing that allowing the stain to sit on the wood for more than 2 minutes would be a huge mistake -- it dries so quickly that it then becomes difficult if not impossible to remove the blotchy solid-color results. With that knowledge, I carefully applied a coating to the top of the table in two parts, in order to give me time to remove the excess stain quickly (<1.5 mins) before moving on. I used a timer to keep me honest by letting me know when one minute had passed. Even that, however, wasn't good enough. While I was able to remove most of the excess before it dried completely, there remained several spots along the edges, but even in the middle of the table where the stain dried almost immediately and I am now left to resand (and potentially re-strip!) the awful results (see photo) so that I can start over. I am not a professional, don't have a climate-controlled workshop, but I have refinished hundreds of pieces of furniture in my day without any comparably bad experiences. Do not make the same mistake in using this product, or if you do, proceed with extreme caution. Signed, disgusted

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great color [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My husband and I got this stain in a gray color to put on a small set of back porch steps that really needed some type of protection. First off, this stain seems to be a little thicker than the other stains we have used so I decided to use a regular paintbrush instead of the sponge type I normally use for stain. It applied very easily and evenly. I love that I can still see the wood grain. I also love the color. The steps now have kind of a weathered look. Very nice. Clean up was a breeze. I just ran the brush under warm water for a few minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Achieved the rustic look [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've been using whitewash pickling stain for some time now and I love the results that it yields. It does take a lot of experience to get the technique down and you need to wipe it off shortly after applying, otherwise you'll end up with streaks and overlapping spots. It's a method of staining that you don't see used often lately but it gives bare wood a beautiful light coloring while still allowing you to see the natural wood grain. Two thin coats work best and always use fresh lint-free rags to wipe the stain off. There's not much like this product on the market and it's great for creating a French country cottage or rustic look. You won't be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minwax® Wood Color Stain [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] After using the Minwax® Wood Finish Water-Based Semi-Transparent Color Stain on a bench on my porch, I was amazed and impressed with how the stain highlighted the wood grain with just applying one coat and it also dried within an hour. Clean up was breeze, too with just soap and water. I think I'll try some other projects that involve staining because now I'm pro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Final finish is awesome [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I really like this! It stains the wood awesomely but you can still have the wood texture and look of wood. It's nice to be able to use just a rag to apply, but I would not let it lay thick on the wood. It needs more of a thin layer than a thick layer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from covered great [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] When I tried Minwax's Wood Finish Water-Based Semi-Transparent Color Stain I used the Barnwood Red and loved it! It covers very well and the red is fantastic. I don't use stain alot but now I am wanting to start doing projects because of how good this one turned out!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Stain for a Recent Project [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Wood Finish water-base semi transparent color stain goes on very thick. Beforehand, we stirred the stain with a drill mounted agitator. Application was smooth and simple it reminded me of using latex paint. Clean up of the brush was simple with some warm water from our garden hose. The coverage and finish were very impressive even with the plywood we were using it dries very quickly as well. We are looking forward to years of treated protection, can’t wait to watch Minwax live up to its reputation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is my first time of using any thing like this and its amazing!! Its is so easy to apply. All i used was a clean rag to apply it to my new shelves. I did use two coats for a little darker color. It took almost a hour for each coat to dry which felt pretty fast to me. I applied it in very small sections following the grain of the wood. The wood i was using kinda of soaked it up pretty fast the first coat which was okay i just didn't want it to be that light. I could still the the wood grain when i was completely finished. I think it is low odor and not really messy to use i guess depending on ones experience with it. Over all its a great stain and i definitely recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and Easy [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I really liked how quickly is was to apply this stain in that it dries fast and definitely enhanced the look of our cedar wood. I wanted to protect the wood, and give it a show stopping look. The clean up is easy as well and before we knew it, the project was done.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too thick They should take this off the market. It’s like putting gel on your wood that dries in a minute. You cannot get a smooth, even finish because the consistency is not like other stain that allows you to wipe on and then wipe off. It leaves wipe marks and thick spots immediately on the surface

Rated 5 out of 5 by from “Oasis Blue” is a beautiful color, great coverage We bought this to stain a raw pine book case, and it turned out beautifully with one application. The aqua tones are exactly what we were hoping for.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tinted test a fail I was looking for a tinted stain for my sons raw wood guitar project. I've stained allot of hardwood in my time but wanted to try a water base. Following the directions we tested two sections one using the miniwax water pre-stain and one with out. They both didn't stain well at all, the treated one stained worse and both looked terrible. We are moving to an oil base as much I hate the cleanup.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst finish ever, thick, will not dry, ruined pro Finish goes on extremely thick, a day later it is still tacky and soft in some areas. Can easily pick at it with a finger and pull it off. It is so bad I want to just burn the project and start over. Couldn’t be more disappointed. Called the help line and they are experiencing high call volume. Couldn’t bring my self to waste more time on hold for 30 minutes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible product I am wanted to use an orange int he woo and based on the color chart I figured a little would bleed into the table top I pretreated as I have done before for a even color look. Not sure it did much. So waste of money there. The color went on globby and dried within 1 min. I tried getting it back up and it was blotchy and drying to quickly. I have a 6" by 40 desk top I built thats now a mess. Going to now spend more time sanding this back off. Might try again as I now know that it wont really soak into the wood but still a pain. Wiping back off took half a roll of paper towels. but again I was worried it would leave really deep dark spots. This is a product I will never ever buy again and will make sure people know not to buy this stuff. I will however see if I can work it out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from pros and cons I purchased a semitransparent quart of charcoal gray. This is very thick and I have concerns on coverage. There was a smell during application however not overwhelming. All the photos I had seen appear to show the charcoal as more of a gray and black tone pulling out the wood grain. After i applied it looks more blue than gray and there is no blackish highlights rather there is lighter colors of the wood grain popping through. Not a big fan of that. As for drying time. WOW!! It does dry fast. I stained late one night at 9 pm, woke up at 6 am and this was completely dry, even at edges where the wood meets. That drying time is a huge plus. I tried a second coat due to the lighter wood poking through. Within an hour I could sit on the bench. Second coat basically covered most of the grain and it was like I didn't even use semi transparent and should have just used the other type of solid color. Mixed emotions on color and coverage. Don't feel I have the value for the purchase made. I did love the dry time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Really wish that Minwax would have kept the Water Based Wood Stain and not have switched to a finish. The finish is so much thicker and does not allow the grain to be seen like the previous version. The consistency is so thick, it is like paint. Requires a lot of wiping off and does not penetrate well, even when used with wood conditioner :(

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does not actually stain the wood. Thought I would try this out since it could be tinted. I needed a red stain and figured this would work. It is not nearly as easy to apply as a oil based stain, which actually absorbs into the wood. I followed directions, which didn't help much. I used on birch ply and not impressed with the finish. The only good thing about this is if you need to remove the stain it will sand off better than oil based since it does not absorb into the wood.
