White Birch veneer was stained to make the colors shown on The Finisher's ColorWheel. White birch veneer was selected as a neutral wood that would not affect the results of the color being used. Stains, names and touch-up materials will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. Wood veneer will vary from piece to piece, sometimes causing variations
in the resulting color.

Opaque: When a surface is saturated with color,
a solid painted effect takes place.
The look of semi transparency is gone.
The surface will appear as if it has been painted.
Clear Base: Clear Base is the vehicle that you mix your colorant into. Clear base can also be a stain reducer.
