I have a very light, blondish mahogany that I’m hesitating to use. I’ve always used the traditional red stuff and I’m wondering if this blonde piece will shift to red or just darken from the color it is. Thanks.

Got some good sun? Put a couple strips of tape on a piece and put it out there for a day. You’ll get your answer.

Kindly,
