Gel Stain Cabinets - stain coming off when sanding Top coat
I finally got my 3 coats of Java Gel Stain ( General Finishes ) done. I am so happy with the results and then DISASTER STUCK when I tried to sand the Arm R Seal. I let them dry for over a week and put on 1 coat of the Arm R Seal ... let that coat dry for 3 days ...put on a 2nd coat.... let the 2nd coat dry for 3 days and then started to sand SUPER LIGHTLY with 400 grit and MY STAIN CAME OFF IN SOME AREAS !! I have no idea what I am doing wrong. Help please : ) Not sure if you can see the missing stain spots in this photo ...but also do you see how much stain came off on my sand paper !?! I used no pressure at all with the 400 grit just rubbed as lightly as I could over the surface 3-4 times.
