Finishing advice - colour under oil??

Post by joe2000 » Fri Apr 12, 2019 4:18 pm

New builder here.

Needing some advice on finishing electrics with Min Wax wipe on poly(oil based).

I am finding it hard to get information on what dyes, colours, stains are acceptable to use under wipe on poly. All of the main players (colortone etc) say that their products arent compatible with the wipe on poly.

That being the case, can anyone tell me what products ARE comptable under wipe on poly? What are my options?

Appreciate the help.

I have used the Feast Watson Prooftint under wipe on poly on furniture without issue.
I would suspect that asking about compatability with oil is confusing people.
