Early in my transtint experience I had that happen as well. Its quite frustrating to have waste at $18 for just 2 oz. I haven’t used a waterbased finish but have come to the conclusion I have better success using the dye separate from the finish. So I use shellac diluted with 2-3 parts denatured alcohol first and then a clear finish over the top and have never had a problem. Its amazing how Shellac sticks to almost anything and everything seems to stick to it but it can cloud if you don’t get a good seal over it. I have had success tinting my finish with transtint but only if a light job is required. When I don’t get it right immediately the frustration of too much finish caused me to change my methods.

Good luck
