So, what exactly is Boom Gel? Boom gel is a multipurpose, Australian made and owned stain. The beauty of boom gel stain lies in its versatility.

Made and owned by Cass and Brett, boom is bottled, labelled, and sealed by hand by Cass, her husband and daughter in law in Mandurah, Western Australia. This small family team work hard to ensure each and every bottle is of exceptional quality.
When they’re not hand bottling Boom from their home in WA, Cass and Brett also love interacting with boom gel users across their multiple social media platforms (you can find their Facebook group here, a supportive space for boom gel stain fans to share their artworks and share tips and tricks).
We spoke to Cass about what she loves most about Boom Gel:
“On a personal level, I am so fortunate as now I work from home. The most rewarding part of being the owner of Boom Gel Stain is hearing how much other's love Boom, literally I get goosebumps. Words can't express my gratitude.”

The easy-to-use nature of the product means anyone can create amazing, beautiful and unique custom works of art. It’s also super easy to clean, simply wash with warm soapy water and you’re ready to move on to your next project.
