MOSU55 is right: poplar colors just fine If done correctly. And I agree with Mr Pink. Transtint dyes are perfect for popular. Followed by gel stain. Then a clear topcoat (I use General Finish satin poly). They don’t blotch and look great. Stains that contain pigments are much more likely to blotch than a pure dye. So a dye is a good first coat. And the gel stain is thick and not deeply absorbed so also reduces blotching. I’ll post a couple of pictures tomorrow after the sun comes out.
