    I do a lot of furniture restoration as a hobby. I really like the Retique, because it is easy to use. On one piece of furniture I did not even sand it down and it came out beautifully.

    I can say do not use this as you would paint, you need to see the streaks. No streaks means put some more on. However do not over do it, less is more if that makes sense. One con is it is expensive, but goes a long way.

    I'm unclear of why you would use this? What is the purpose … sorry, I'm a senior and can't figure out the "need" for this product … is it to make something that isn't wood LOOK LIKE wood? And then you can paint/stain it? Is it for wood that has water marks or imperfections?

      Yep. Make sure you get the right one for the job. They have light and dark. If you want to re-stain to a dark color get the dark. If you want to stain to a light color get the light. Also make sure you are using the right type of stain. Water based gel stains work well on this product.
