You will learn how to get a nice, even stain on wood in this Home and Garden video tutorial brought to you by TheSoapGuy. It's really easy and simple to do. Get a finished piece of wood. You should work in a well ventilated area because wood stain generates a lot of fumes. Wood stain comes in aerosol spray and in cans. Mix the stain in the can by rolling the can. Don't shake it, it will generate bubbles. Open the can and apply the wood stain with a brush evenly on the surface. The more coats you apply, the darker it gets. If you want some areas to be light, just apply one coat. Apply the next coat only when the previous coat is dry. It's as simple as that.
