This part of my walnut finishing schedule always freaks me out. I start with Solarlux Lemon Yellow dye and everything turns this gosh awful shade of yellow.
I've used the process (from Terri Masachi's Foolproof Wood Finishing) several times, so in my head I know it will be ok, but in my heart its "oh no I've ruined it."
Next steps are shellac seal coat, van dyke brown glaze, another seal coat and then varnish. I'll take some pics when its done.
