Farmhouse Stain


Natural Whey Stain is a type of stain that is made from whey, a byproduct of cheese production, minerals, and natural pigments. This stain is an eco-friendly alternative to traditional synthetic stains and is suitable for use on wood and other porous surfaces.

One of the main advantages of using natural whey stain is that it is a sustainable product, as it makes use of a byproduct of the dairy industry that would otherwise go to waste. It's also safe to handle and has low VOC content

Because of the protein found in whey, the stain is able to penetrate deeply into the wood fibers, providing a more natural and durable finish than synthetic stains. It is also water resistant and can help to protect wood from rot and decay.

Natural stain with whey is also a good choice for individuals who are sensitive to chemicals, as it is free of synthetic fragrances and other harmful ingredients that are commonly found in traditional stains.

  1. Stir well prior to use.
  2. Always test the finish on a sample piece of wood to confirm the desired appearance.
  3. Using a brush, pad or clean cloth, apply thin, even coats in the direction of the grain, taking care to avoid puddling. Overlap strokes, always maintaining a wet edge. If desired, wipe off excess material within five minutes.
  4. Finish will be dry and ready to re-coat in two hours.
  5. If a deeper tone is desired, apply additional coats. For best results, apply in temperatures between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit and relative humidity 40%-60%. Low temperature and high humidity may lengthen dry time. For optimum protection and beauty, topcoat with our Finish Coat or Hemp Seed Oil
