Yes; The base to oil finishes is BLO, it is a binder for solids and pigments and creates flow. Polyurethanes and varnishes have Blo in them to dilute and make the finish flow out. Finishes also have thinners, (carriers) to reduce and extend drying times as in regular poly and quick drying polys.
You can change the way stains take by thinning Blo down and applying before staining. If you are unsure always do some test peices first.
