You can put layers of tru oil over the top of your stain you just can't use Wez's wet sanding technique or you'll lift some of the stain. @Andyjr1515 has finished some guitars this way he'll have used fountain pen ink as a stain (it works really well).
I`ll be attempting my first partscaster in a few weeks ,so a couple of questions for you more experienced chaps.
How much oil should I buy for an ash body and maple neck ?
Does Tru oil impart any colour , I don`t want a white , pale , anaemic looking thing when I`ve finished.
What is the finish like on ash if you don`t grain fill ?
Has anybody tried Liberon finishing oil?
I use it on my oak worktops in the kitchen , comes up nice , seems quite hard.
Jewellers rouge any good for polishing , or am I just being silly .
( I`m just thinking of whats in the cupboard under the sink , LOL.)
Does anyone know , can you put Tru Oil on over nitro ?
I`m just trying to figure out the best way to do a neck/headstock , esp. regarding the waterslide .
I`ve already done the body in Tru Oil , looking really good,
but as I already have a can of nitro , I might just use it for the neck ,as it was already poly sealed when I bought it , I`m just worried nitro might damage the waterslide if I spray over it .
Just found an unopened tin of briwax under the sink as well ( bought originally for my oak doors)
The black mark looks suspiciously like a tool mark
the light marks should come out with more wetsanding, unless their is still some sealer there stopping it. might be worth going back a few grades on this small area
