You need to start with bare wood, sanded to about P400 grit.

Rub in BLACK stain, then sand it back to highlight any grain

Perhaps do this once more.

Grain should be very dark, rest of wood should be natural.

Apply your green stain.

Clear coat or oil the wood.

Wet sand and buff for clear coat, polish for oil.

I do think you can mix some green pigments into the clear coat, don't kill me if i'm wrong though.

That is a Candy finish which you cant really do with a spray can, unless you can find somewhere that sells green clear Otherwise you have to tint your own clear and use spray equipment.
