    Would any of these stain colors cover the ink stamped on pressure treated wood? Advise on another website says to sand off the ink stamps, but I'm not sure if the stain will apply evenly if I do this.

    I ordered 5 samples and intend to order two 5 gallon pails.

    1. what is the shelf life of the product?
    2. will I receive a $15 credit for each pail, total of $30 if I order two 5 gallon pails?

    $15 max credit is allowed. Shelf life if unopened is a few years. Opened and it depends on how well it is protected from evaporation. Could be a year or less.

    Just finished a new smooth cut Redwood deck and would like to keep the natural look of the wood. Something like when the wood is wet. What would you suggest for this look. Also we live in San Diego where the winters are pretty mild?

    Thank you!

    I am looking to match a dark bronze color on house trim. Would Oxford Brown or Sequoia be closer? Thank you for your help.

    Nether is bronze. Oxford is a dark brown and Sequoia is red with a little bit of brown.

    Where is the Armstrong Clark cedar tone available in Canada? We live in Canada and want to keep our natural cedar look and prevent greying from occuring. We are currently sanding it down and then what else would you recommend before apply this stain?

    There are not dealers in Canada but we can ship to you there. Prep with a deck cleaner after the sanding.

    I like the look of your semi-solid stains but my wife wants to see a bit more of the grain. Would adding a bit of the transparent natural tone stain to the semi-solid be a good way to achieve that?

    No and that would change the color of the semi-solids. You can still see the grain with the semi-solids.

    I am trying to decide what color satin to get, and it would be extremely helpful to know what color stain was used in all the examples you have up on your photo page. Is there any way you can label what color stain was used in the photos?

    Deb, all stain colors turn out differently based on the deck age, wood type etc. We purposely do not label the pictures as we do not want to give a "false" impression that it will look exactly like the picture. This is why we offer samples so you can test on your wood.

    I am looking for a med brown that will NOT dry with a reddish tint -- I am leaning towards sequoia but would woodland or oxford be better?

    Use the Rustic Brown.

    Hi. Does natural transparent make the wood look wet or is it truly clear?

    Thank you

    It is lightly tinted, not clear.

    Deidre:
    I would like to order semi solid stain with a medium brown shade and will buy samples Can you suggest two color combinations that I could mix? The Oxford brown seems too dark and I'm not sure about red tones in the sequoia and woodland. Would I start with a lighter semi solid and mix Oxford brown. Thank you for your expert advice

    Deidre, maybe a combination of Mountain Cedar and Oxford Brown. Not sure on the ratio but start with the Mountain cedar and add some Oxford Brown to it to darken it to the color you want.

    wendy:
    What kind of wood are the samples painted on.
    Im staining 1200 sq ft of old cedar ,freshly sanded with new replaced boards in spots.
    I know the stain will vary all over just wondering what your samples are painted on and what may be a good colour of stain?

    Can I mix the redwood tone with the sierra redwood ? :-)
    thank you

    Yes you can mix the AC colors together. Any of our colors work well on Cedar wood. I believe the samples are on cedar. Color will still vary though.

    Is there a photo of mountain cedar to get an idea of the shade? Is it like taupe?

    I meant to ask, if I want a medium brown semi solid color, would I mix a lighter shade semi transparent with semi solid Oxford brown and can you suggest two color options to mix? Thank you for your support
