It is almost in almost opaque in appearance. anybody have any ideas? September 20, 1997 at 4:48 pm #76345 Paul C. You can create your own stain, and then adjust thepigments until you get the color you want. A fullline paint store or a specialty woodworking storewill have the products you need. Hope this helps.
