I stained a piece of Birdseye maple. Cherry red transtint, mixed with alcohol. I later shot 6 coats of rattle can clear nitro, and had to drop fill a small depression. Sanding the drop fill and lacquer resulted in pink dust and some thinning of the color. I don’t think I sanded through the lacquer, but maybe I did. Questions: Is there something I should/could have done to lock in that color? Is the color bleeding into the lacquer? Is there a way to add color over lacquer? Tinted shellac, followed by more clear lacquer?
