Stnich, John and Jay – thank you for your input.
Aniline dye looks like a good solution. I’ll give it a try. I went on Woodworker’s supply web page and I read about the “Wizard Tints” that can be used to tint shellac. I’ve never used shellac but I read a lot of good things about it.
I just wonder if all the “ready made” stains that we find a big box stores are not actually, say a base medium, either water or oil, tinted with aniline dye.
I’ll be doing some testing this weekend.
