Adding stain to clear coat OK?
I'm finishing the quarter round molding between our kitchen cabinets and the new wood floor.
I stained it yesterday but the coloring is somewhat uneven and a little too light. I used Mini Wax stain and also have their clear coat stuff (poly...?). I'm thinking of adding some stain to the clear coat hoping that it will provide a more even coloring. There are areas of blotchiness where glue spilled and dark spots where the nail hole filler soaked up the stain.
Will this help provide a more uniform coloring? Any particular method to it? I'm guessing that I would only color the first coat of finish, then sand it and apply a second clear coat without the stain?
I'm not looking for "stunning" results, just a pleasing appearance without a lot of extra work.
