We are putting pine half log siding on our cabin and we wanted to stain it a dark brown. We bought a gallon that looked good in the brochure, but when we put it on a sample it was too light. It was like it wouldn’t soak in. The guy at the paint store just kept adding pigment to get it dark. Is that OK? Is there a different product or process we should use? Also, is it OK to stain once it’s up vs before?
