Topic tags/keywords: question

Can anyone help me pick a glazing stain? I want to give some aged look to a maple period piece that I’m dyeing with lockwoods maple honeytone.

Hey mark,maybe I’m using the wrong terminology but I think it’s a diluted form of finish that you wipe on and then wipe off so that it gets in all the nooks and crannys. I just want to make sure I don’t change the base color. So I’m not sure what to use. The base is a water dye stain.
