Default Re: Minwax Polyshades

I've used poly shades for a quick finish on pine to prevent blotching and get a nice golden tone. Quick and simple. It gets a little darker with each coat but also starts to get a little muddy if you put too many coats. Get to the color you want and stop and if you need more protection because you get to the darkness you want in only one or two coats, then go over it with regular clear poly.

It's got it's place but I wouldn't call it top shelf.
