Hey Mike, coloring just the knots is done in this manner:1. one coat of sanding sealer2. two to three coats spray lacquer, satin3. apply gel stain to carved area with a small brush and wipe off surface with clean rag.4. repeat step 3 as needed to get a uniform color in the carved areas5. finish with a final coat of spray lacquer
