Customer Reviews

Product self-levels and the finish is excellent.
S. McKenna
After using Polyshades for the first time to finish a custom cabinet and entertainment center I built, I was not all that happy with the finish.
Jeff C.
My biggest problem with this (and also the Polyurethan) is that it takes weeks till it does not smell any more.

The first thing you need to know about Minwax polyshades is that mineral spirits will take it off when wet, so don't give up hope when you find your project is a mess after applying this stuff. On my project, I found that the polyshades tacked up way too quickly to keep the wet edge that the instructions advise. On properly prerpared poplar (prepped with the Minwax stain prep per instructions) it did not take the stain component well and tacked up before the wood absorbed the stain - basically sat on the wood and did not look good.

Polyshades may work better for wood that is already finished and needs some touch up, but after my experience using it, I would never recommend it to anyone I like.

Update: I added 2 stars (up from one) because it works well enough when slightly thinned out in a HVLP sprayer. I re-stained it first so it would have some color in the wood, and then applied the Polyshades (since it was already opened I could not return it). It does need to be sprayed on in several thin coats to avoid runs (it runs really easy), and I sanded between coats.

Unfortunately the instructions only mention brushing it on, which in my experience just makes a big mess since it tacked up way too fast. I had to remove the polyshades from the first brushed on attempt. I am the type of person who does follow the recommendations on the label so I was not happy that the recommended brush on method produced a really poor result. If the instructions had recommended spraying (which I did not see mentioned on the label), I would have been much happier with the results, and would have saved a great deal of time.

Color Name: Classic Black
I used this product to re-finish "This End Up" furniture purhased in 1986 and made from Southern Yellow Pine. It was absolutely fantastic, and provided a finish which was far beyond my expectations.
Technique is important. Follow the directions on the can, and i suggest that you apply from late fall through winter when temperatures are not so high to quickly dry the wet edge (assuming you are doing this in a garage or un-heated area).
The wood had not been mantained over the past 15-20 years. I dusted and vacummed it clean, and applied a first coat which i allowed to dry for 36 hours. Then i took 0000 steel wool and buffed with medium pressure. Yes, in spots i removed all of the stain.
I repeated the above two more times, with decreasing buff-pressure, and added a $2 tack cloth to remove dust.
Product self-levels and the finish is excellent. Since this is black, i can't see the wood grain through the stain, other than the texture of wood. I am not sure if other stain colors would work as well, or how this would work on other types of wood, but based upon my results with black on Southern Yellow Pine I would certainly consider to use this in the future.

Above all, go sparingly with the application of product....you can always add more!

Thanks

After using Polyshades for the first time to finish a custom cabinet and entertainment center I built, I was not all that happy with the finish. I read over the directions. I am very good with oil based paints and from everything I read, using alkyd painting techniques is certainly the best approach to brushing Polyshades. The finish was acceptable, but not as good as if I had stained and finished with polyurethane in separate steps. In that scenario, I would rate this product 2 stars.

The most notable issues with a brushed application (and keep in mind I consider myself good with brush applications of finishes) is the inconsistency in the finished color. Fortunately, the inconsistency was so consistent; the piece appeared to be intentionally finished in that style (if that makes any sense).

If you insist on using the product and applying with a brush, be sure to use a 100% natural China bristle of good quality, adequate bristles (not a chip brush), and keep it clean with mineral spirits as you use it. The Polyshades will thicken up in the bristles and affect your finish. This is the same caveat for alkyd painting.

THERE IS A PURPOSE FOR POLYSHADES and more important, there is a better application method.

First, if you're finishing bare wood (as I was in my first experience of Polyshades), pass on the Polyshades and go the traditional route. The only exception to this is if you are in a rush and have HVLP spray equipment.

Now secondly, and most important to this review: If want to refinish a piece, that’s when Polyshades works very well. Polyshades can be a time saver, but sometimes it the most practical solution.

Using kitchen cabinets as an example, suppose you wanted to darken your Golden Oak finished kitchen cabinets.

Color Name: Old Maple
I have been a woodworker most of my 75 years and this is one of the best products I have ever used to finish new wood projects. I have used it on all interior wood in my home to include wainscoting throughout the house, all interior six panel doors, closet doors, and all molding and trim. I also used it on my three exterior door which have the same beautiful finish after 12 years. I did use five coats on the outside of the exterior doors but summer sun is harsh here. If you are looking for the product to provide a miracle look without a little work, then you need to call someone who knows what they are doing. Beautiful wood finishes require a little work no matter what product you use. Read and follow the instruction, do not use in direst sun, especially when the temperature is high. Use a good quality bristle brush (3" max on flat smooth surfaces. 2" on molding and raised panel shapes.) Do not let the brush load up (this is why I never use foam brushes) rinse in mineral spirits to prevent. Watch for runs and clean up quickly. Allow to dry at least 24 hours between coats and sand lightly with 300 grit or finer. Steel wool before final coat. I recommend three coats. This is not paint. It will not repair an old finish or cover beer circles on old coffee tables. Use it as it was intended and formulated for and you will find it is a great product.
