I had some intermittent success with Charles Niel’s stuff on maple + water dyes. Smaller pieces worked wonderfully. The bigger ones had to be resanded many times before I managed to get something more or less acceptable. Because I already used it on other parts and it does change color so I had no choice but to continue using it for the whole piece.
The blotch control is water soluble after it dries and you literally have seconds to apply your finish. On bare wood you can just flood the surface at once and wipe the excess. No need to maintain the wet edge as there is no edge. This does not work with blotch control. The water dye dissolves the sealer, mixes with it and creates incredible mess.
