Yes, it will definitely bleed through and blend with the underlaying color. But notice the way Trifern does it…he sands areas of the work aggressively between dye coats, going down to almost bare wood in some areas. This means that the new dye color will blend with color underneath but remain pure color in those areas that were sanded. He then says that the first applied coat of wipe-on poly does a lot to bring back out the black contrast areas.

If you don’t sand areas to bare like Trifern, the resulting coats will be just a solid blend of the dyes.
