White stain

I am attempting to stain a pine crib white. (pine to preserve the bites and bangs of a special infant) So I need a safe white stain and protective coating product. I tried white wash pickling from minwax on a test piece and it's simply not white enough, even after 4 coats.

I'll tell the complete story of the crib once I'm finished with the project and post it.

I am a fan of 'old masters' stain. it has oil in it so it will need 12-24 hours dry time, but has a lot more pigment in it than Minwax. When you stir the can it is a really heavy sludgey stuff.

But Also, when I work with oak - I bleach it first. So that my "base color" is whiter. I use the KleenStrip 2 part wood bleach, leave it for 12 hours or so then neutralize it with vinegar. It may be that the bleach will remove the 'yellow' graining to leave you a "Whiter" base to work from.
