Our 1900 sq. ft. deck was sanded, cleaned and freshly stained less than 1 week ago. Stain color applied was 1 Cedartone to 2 Redwood. Still way too red for me!! Suggestions? Possible to apply more Cedartone or Pecan or Rustic on top to alter the color?
You should not apply another coat on top now. TWP when applied needs to be applied wet on wet. Applying a third coat or another coat after the first coat dries could result in the TWP not soaking into the wood grain. It will dry, but it may take a few days and could be shiny in spots. This means it filmed on top of the wood and would be prone to premature wearing. In addition you cannot tone down a red by adding a lighter color as the red would still be the dominate color showing through. If you really did not like it and want to switch, you would have to strip and remove to start over.
In the future it is best to add the Clear to lessen a stocked color. Meaning 1 part Redwood to 1 part Clear would give about half the color that Redwood would normally give. Dark Oak is also a good color to mix with as it will "brown" colors.
