Is it normal to leave the dye to dry for 12 hours before the next coat? I built an entertainment center out of maple, using TransTint dies, and I would flood the surface, let it sit for a couple minutes, then wipe off. Once the wood felt dry (couple hours), I sanded back down to help make the grain stand out. Did a couple coats like this and it turned out great. Is LV’s dye different?
