In a rush to finish a recent piece (maple), I quickly stained it with an oil-based stain.
The only way I’ve been able to get a really dark maple color is to FIRST stain it a couple times with transtint dye in water, and THEN stain it with a typical oil-based stain.
Now that I’ve already applied the oil based stain out of order, am I screwed? or do you think I could apply transtint in alcohol/water after the oil-based stain dried?
My guess is that I can’t…
thoughts, experience? suggestions?
thanks in advance Lumberjocks!
