Re: Hand staining instruments
I have a can of Stew-Mac aerosol Sanding Sealer. Should I spray this on and sand it down before applying the wood dye? The can says, "Can be applied over ColorTone wood stains," but I'm wondering if I use it before I apply the dye, will it help the dye soak in more evenly. I don't have the setup to use real hide glue, so I'm looking for something that will keep the dye from looking splotchy.
I'm using the aniline dye in the powder form.
