Re: Epoxy: Tinting
In Response To: Re: Epoxy: Tinting ()

For what it's worth, I just mahogany stained the hull of my present build using denatured alcohol as the solvent. I had taped off trim highlights that I did not want stained first and used a rag to apply the stain. I am sure if you used a loaded brush to apply stain you would have a bleed through problem. Using a rag and gently wiping the wood I had absolutely no problem. I even applied two coats to darken the stain somewhat and to blend in the different grain patterns. I attached a 4oz. cover of glass and everything looks great.
