Wood is making a come back!!!
I refurbish Furniture for a living in the Las Vegas area, so when this product came across my desk I couldn't wait to try. It was a very easy process and the results were pretty amazing. I used it on a piece that is all particle board. Painted on Retique it, waited for it to dry and layered rust-oleum stains in carbon gray and dark walnut. Added a layer of poly and called it a day. It looks just like weathered wood!!! Great job Renaissance.. your products never disappoint !

I recommend this product to anyone who has a restoration project
I recommend this product to anyone who has a restoration project. I was very pleased with the results and I am already planning another project just so I can use it again. Very user friendly and cuts the project time down.. I didn't even sand the surface of my last project before applying the retique it. You can't go wrong with this product. It definitely gave my dresser the "wow" factor!!

Great Product!!! I refinish furniture as a hobby and also sell pieces. After seeing a video of this product on Facebook, I had to try it! It's very easy to use and saves a ton of time. After just one application of the paint, I was able to stain the top effortlessly. Definitely going to be using this again!!!

We had a staining mishap with some window trim that was already in place and to complicate things even further, we now have two babies in the house (so we have to make sure we are using low-VOC paints and stains, keep any sanding dust contained, etc.). This product was an absolute lifesaver! It doesn't smell at all, was very easy to use, and we were able to just paint this over our existing wood trim without doing any sanding. The stain took to it well.

Worked as hoped for
Tried out the product (medium color) on our painted picture rail, followed by a mix of Minwax Express Stain in Walnut and Mahagony. No smell and easy clean-up of both products. The stainable primer provides what it promises: a surface that can be stained. It does not magically provide a wood pattern which I did not expect anyway (just wanted an approximation of the existing mahagony trim).

I was super skeptical but I didn't want to strip my front door although I wanted a wood grain look. I saw this used on YouTube and decided to go for it. First I tried it out on a small peice of furniture. I suggest this before going all out on a huge project. I was able to see how it
would turn out and also was able to get down the technique prior to starting on my large doors. You do need to work in long strokes to get that wood look. It was difficult working with my door that had ridges and therefore more difficult to do the wood grain long strokes BUT not impossible. I used the dark wood primer and used a transparent dark stain over it. Most stains you rub off after it's applied from what I saw on YouTube however once I applied stain over this primer I could not rub it off BUT I loved the look it gave. All and all, this stuff is pretty cool and actually does work. A little goes a long way. I did 2 small pieces of furniture and 2 large double doors and I not even a quarter of the primer is gone. This stuff could literally cover so much.

Love this product!!
This product is amazing! I used used medium for the top of this coffee stand and then the Terre Verte in their chalk paint line. This was my first time trying the Retique It and I am very satisfied. I have so many projects I will be doing in the near further with this product! See before and after pictures.

Pretty Darn Cool
Really cool stuff. Don't know that is use it on something large that gets up close and personal viewing because it doesn't look exactly like the wood grain but darn close. Used it on end table. Whoever invented this should be proud.

Very easy to apply
Exceed my expectation. I get 1qt to try on my wood door painted white with metal frame. Very easy to apply, dry very quickly and take stain like regular wood. Excellent product. Very happy with the results. Ordering more today to use on my metal front door in the condo, that I can’t replace. I was thinking about putting veneer and stain after. With this product I will not have to do this. It will save me a lot of time and money and looking for somebody to cut openings for door locks. Very happy. Thank you.

I like this product👍🏼
Works as described!. I refinisished a Dresser which I didn’t want to sand, I applied two coats of this product, then stain it, and I like it. I think I’ll use this more for small to medium surfaces, I’ll not use it for a dining table top, I think it will look weird to my taste. I had attach some pictures of my project, but in person looks better than pictures
