Didn’t mean to be “high falutin”!
Very very thin coat of shellac or other clear sealer to prevent blotching. There are spray cans of toner in a well supplied paint store. If it gets too thick the dye won’t penetrate it and you’re stuck. But yes, that is basically it. If you try to brush all this, there will likely be trouble. Spray if you can, carefully.
The hard part of these mulit coat finishes is that none of the steps give you the final appearance. Practice, practice, practice. It’s worth your time.
