I want to apply a dark finish to a cylindrical basswood vase then chip carve a design on it. I want the contrast between the dark finish and the light basswood in the chip carving.
What would be the best finish. Basswood seems very porous. Will it suck up the dark finish like a sponge.
Thinking of using shellac to seal it first before applying the dark stain.
