Help! I would like to find a semi-transparent stain that is TURQUOISE. I had an opaque stain on my old deck, but I want to see the grain of the wood and have an awesome pop of colour. Sikkens has an awesome colour but not great reviews, plus, I cannot get it in Canada. Anyone have any suggestions for me? I am looking at the Beauti-tone products but was also told it is not too good of a product. I live in a small town but have access to Home Hardware and Rona products. Thanks in advance!

Never seen a semi-transparent stain in that color and if you do find it, it means it has to be custom tinted and that leads to more of a semi-solid or solid color. Basically, we think you are out of luck on this one. Sorry.

Oh they definitely exist; here's a link to the Home Hardware latest semi-transparents available.
Sikkens also makes a fantastic line of translucents but apparently the quality of Sikkens is not good at all. Plus, you can't get them in Canada.
 
I want to make sure what I get has durability. Does anyone have success with Home Hardware's Beauti-tone line? 
 
Thanks in advance!

As we mentioned prior, to get that color means it has to be custom tinted and that leads to more of a semi-solid or solid color. 

You will not get a true semi-transparent with either of those brands in that color.

@administrator Thank you. I am ok with it not being a true-semitransparent. I guess I am more interested in the quality of the product. Do you have any experience with Home Hardware's Beauti-tone line?

We have never used it but others have mentioned it on this site. Mediocre results.
