Good afternoon, I had a few questions about powdered stains, the advantages of alcohol vs. water based, and general tips on application. Is there an advantage or drawback to alcohol based stain? I would figure it'd lessen pore swelling and dry quicker. What kind of alcohol are we talking to mix the powder into, ethyl / anhydrous or electronics grade? Surely not rubbing alcohol... Is there a rule of thumb for application? Do rags work better? Brushes? In a single-coat application, are there risks of overlap marks / streaks or is this not a concern due to the nature of the stain? Should I hang the body and go nuts all at once (wearing gloves, of course), over doing the front face and sides, and then doing the back later? Just confused, and trying to do a med. walnut stain on unfilled grain Swamp Ash...and followed by a matte nitro or poly finish. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated, I need a winter project, and this is new to me. many thanks in advance.
