Rich I often dial the fluid back and up the pressure and ” do light dust coats , to get to the desired color, but if your not careful you can get “zebra stripes, ” i always do a light coat one direction then the other,, its called a cross hatch . backing off the distance to the the wood and dusting it on works the best .
Sounds like another video for another day .
In this case with the tiger maple, you want to get it wet so the soft curl can get as much dye as possible and when you wipe it back that pulls some of the dye off the hard grain , and that really enhances the figure in other words tiger maple is a blotch that happens to be attractive and you want to blotch it as much as possible
