Pre-sealing the wood will lighten the color of your stain so test the Pre-stain and the color before starting. To achieve a darker color, a second coat of the final color stain may be applied after the first coat has dried or best results use a DYE of the same tonal range on the wood prior to the Pre-Stain.
