Black is the hardest finish to get right. Even a flat or satin look is difficult. Dont beat yourself up its not just you. :(

That’s true for automobile paint jobs, but dye problems on wood have to do with color consistency and accuracy. And yes, they say black is a tough one to get even color on.

Maybe I’m misreading the OP, but it sounds like he’s having problems getting a smooth surface. That would be an issue with wood prep, top coat application or even contaminates since it’s not affecting the entire surface.

Am I wrong about that, JSMorgan? Is it the color or the quality of the surface?
