Matching color is not a simple task. What Grumpymike wants to do is a real life problem without the luxury of second chances. It might mean that he doesn’t get paid.

I too am from the KISS school of thought, but in this case KISS does not apply.

And BTW, oils are one of the best ways to make your projects really pop…I wouldn’t dismiss something like BLO so readily. In Mike’s case, popping the figure first with some BLO is easy. The shellac barrier is then very necessary…and also easy. It’s the third step that it tough…and that’s true no matter what you do beforehand.
