One-Step Wood Stain and Finish with Minwax PolyShades Minwax PolyShades is stain and finish all in one. PolyShades contains stain color and polyurethane protection finish in one can, and is offered in 12 wood stain colors -- both gloss and satin sheen. This will give your wood a rich color with long lasting protection, while enhancing the grain. In this video, Bruce Johnson shows us how to apply Minwax PolyShades.

To apply, begin by testing stain on a piece of scrap wood. Prepare wood with Minwax Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner. Apply PolyShades with a quality natural bristle brush, or if using aerosol, hold 8"-10" from surface and apply evenly. The key to quality is to apply thin coats of PolyShades. To make the color darker, simply add another coat.
