In Response To: Penetrating Stains (steve amato)

The main reason for using a penetrating stain it so that you get a higher clarity of the grain. In say Birdseye Maple when you want to see all the depth and high chatoyance of the wood the penetrating stains work very well. On the other hand all the differance in color between each seperate piece of wood in a furniture item will show up a lot more too. So when I have to control the colors I will use an NGR stain, and then use a glaze to manulipate the subtle colors and regain some of the patina and charector or to highlight carving etc.
