I thought everything was going so well. I stripped all the paint off my cheapo Spirit Steinberger. Slick as a whistle. I mixed up my aniline dye and prepared to give it a light coat, raising the grain so I could sand it back down again. Only nothing happened. Finally, I figured out that this thing had some kind of sealer coat on it that was preventing my dye from penetrating. I could see the desired results on some of the horns and corners where I had really gotten down to bare wood. So my question is what's the quickest way to get through this crap? I'm sanding like a madman, but it seems to be twice as thick as the original paint. Any chemical I can use to remove the sealer? Thanks!
