i used a gel stain to finish my fish tank stand. I would like to know what would be a good thing to put over the gel stain to seal the stain so it does not get water stains on it. someone told me to use tung oil but another person said not to. thanks a lot
An easy durable finish would be an oil base polyurethane. You can brush it on or wipe it on. If wiping, thin with mineral spirits 40%-50% for the first coat (use naptha for a faster dry). When dry reduce the thinning to about 20%-30%. The more coats you add the more build you get with the finish.
