Good thoughts and ideas shared.
BLO dries very slowly. I’d steer away from it.
WOP dries slowly as well, so plan ahead.
Whether I’m staining (gel stain) or painting a carving, I like fast drying to seal quickly.
1-2 coats of SealCote Zinnser, wax-free shellac.
2-3 coats of spray satin lacquer.
Apply gel stain or paint as you like!
Results are impressive and blotchy colors when staining basswood are avoided.
