Instructions for using Minwax® Design Series Wood Effects.


  • Start with bare or stripped wood that’s clean and dry.
  • For best results, start with a medium grit sand paper, and increase the grit as you go, finishing with #220 as final sand. Remove sanding dust.


  • Test before applying on a hidden spot to make sure you like the effect.
  • Stir product well before and occasionally during application. Don’t shake or thin product.
  • Apply in direction of the grain. No wiping required.
  • Product reacts differently with every piece of wood. Preferred wood species: Oak.
  • Not recommended for large surfaces like floors due to fast dry time. Use Minwax® Wood Finish™ Penetrating Oil Stain for large projects.


  • For a rustic look that will continue to patina with time – topcoat not recommended.
  • For increased durability and protection while maintaining a rustic look, use polycrylic ultra flat.

Use only with adequate ventilation. To avoid over exposure, open windows and doors or use other means to ensure fresh air entry during application and drying. If you experience eye watering, headaches, or dizziness, increase fresh air, or wear respiratory protection (NIOSH approved) or leave the area. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Wash hands after using. Keep container closed when not in use. Do not transfer contents to other containers for storage.

FIRST AID: In case of eye contact, flush thoroughly with large amounts of water. Get medical attentional if irritation persists. If swallowed, call Poison Control Center, hospital emergency room, or physician immediately.
