slaytanic Posted February 24, 2006 Report Share Posted February 24, 2006 Im sure this has been asked a million times but Im too lazy to search through every thread trying to find it. Anyway, I have some redwood veneer that I want to give a grey or black transparent finish or possibly a maroonish transparent, I have never done this before. I know theres a way to not screw it up, which is what I dont want to do. I want to try and avoid the trial and error thing if you know what I mean. So, is there a certain type/brand of dye or stain that is recommended? Is there alot of sanding involved to make the grain stand out? Since it is veneer, should I be sanding on it at all? Should I wipe on stain/dye or spray it? Do I need to use some kind of sealer? Can someone give me some steps on how I go about doing this? Dont really know much about what kinds of clear coat to use either. So if anyone can recommend any types of stain/dye and clear coats it would be much appreciated.
