The solids tend to settle on the bottom of the stain container, and mixing will blend them evenly into the sealer to ensure a consistent color tone throughout the project. For both horizontal and vertical structures, brushing is the best method for stain/sealer applica- tion because the bristles push the product evenly into the woodgrain
