Also asked, how long does Minwax PolyShades take to dry?

To get a great result with PolyShades®, apply two or three very thin coats, building up the film and color slowly, rather than trying to apply one thick coat. Allow the Polyshades® to dry for 6 hours between coats.

Also Know, what is the best way to apply Minwax PolyShades? Coat soft, porous woods such as pine or alder with Minwax Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner by applying it with a brush or cloth. Allow it to dry for five to 15 minutes, and then use a dry cloth to remove the excess. Finish the surface with PolyShades within two hours of application of the Minwax conditioner.

In this way, how long does it take for polyurethane to cure?

Length of time to dry for water borne polyurethane: After 2 days, you can move furniture back. 1 week after dogs can walk on the floor (unless you get Doggie Socks which you can buy on Amazon). It takes a full 30 days for the floors to cure, so it's ideal to wait 30 days before putting area rugs on the surface.

Do you have to sand between coats of PolyShades?

Apply a THIN coat of Minwax® Fast-Drying Polyurethane using a high-quality natural or foam brush. Let dry 4-6 hours. Then lightly sand entire surface with fine sandpaper (220 grit) to ensure an even finish and proper adhesion. Remove all dust.
