There are a couple of different threads going on similar to this, but I didn't want to hijack any of them. I have always wanted to create a Nocaster blonde finish. The finishes from ReRanch really don't do it, and I am boycotting them because I'm sick of the site always being locked. So, given that Minwax has a stain that I could use as the "white wash" undercoat, can I have Lowes mix the correct color in a Minwax stain? What other options are there? I'm considering going with a Preval and mixing colors from Stew Mac, but I like the stain idea. I assume that I can spray Deft clear over Minwax? Thoughts?
